Somme Recce (Provisional)
November 1 - 5, 2021TBC
Taking a Guild recce format with participating Guild members passing on their knowledge of the battlefield and tour tips based on experience. Participants will be invited to share their knowledge with the group as we visit possible “stands” around the battlefields.
Newcomers to the Guild and battlefield guiding on the Western Front need not be concerned that your knowledge may not match that of experienced members. That is the whole point of recces to gain information and you will be surprised that even the smallest piece of knowledge, even if thought to be in another area, may be of considerable interest to your fellow members. Apart from that, the camaraderie of members is fabulously infectious!
This is five-day recce to the Somme under recce leaders John Cotterill & Paul Oldfield.
An itinerary based on last year’s postponed recce is expected to be followed (note days in this itinerary do not correspondent to 2021 days!)
