I am in the process of upgrading the site so rather than add two pages of the same thing I shall use a modified version of this new style for future posts until everything is linked back in again.
I have been visiting the battlefields of the Western Front for about twenty-five years now. In order to be able to potter to my heart's content I moved to France in 2003, bringing my meagre pension with me.
Through the menu on the right side of the page you should be able to explore the countryside.
Not everything is covered because there is so much to see and visit. My objective is to try and link things together so that with luck readers who were looking for one thing will find something else that interests them nearby. That's how the site is constructed: I become distracted by something totally unconnected with the research in hand, but interesting all the same.
A new plaque commemorating the gas attacks on the 16th (Irish) Division at Hulluch has been unveiled at St Mary’s ADS Cemetery.

I have added new pages in connection with the Hundredth Anniversary of the Battle of Loos.
