World War I – Belgian Flanders WWI Battlefields Day Tour – The YPRES SALIENT
Season: From April 01 to October 31, 2015
Duration: Approx. 12 hours
We will explore this area where a dramatic period of history took place, where “the armies of many nations served in the salient. Ypres has become particularly associated with commonwealth forces who were here continuously from October 1914 to the end of the war […] By the time the last shells fell on Ypres in October 1918, the Salient had claimed 185,000 Commonwealth lives”.
With our WWI Battlefields Day Tour of Belgian Flanders you will discover the Ypres Salient and its major sites (memorials, cemeteries and traces of battles): John McRae’s Essex Farm site; Langemark (German cemetery); Vancouver Corner (Canadian Memorial); Tyne Cot cemetery (Passchendaele); Polygon Wood (5th Australian Division Memorial).
You’ll walk the moonscape of the Hill 60 battlefield, see Memorials to British, Australian and Canadian regiments and also spend time in Ypres itself to visit the Menin Gate Memorial.
