Journeys of Remembrance

Poppy - Spirit of Remembrance  To visit a former battlefield and the cemeteries and memorials that cluster around these battlefields is a highly emotional pilgrimage - as well as startling educational experience – often it is both.

Poppy - Spirit of Remembrance  Today the widows and their immediate and extended family of men and women who fought and died in Europe, Africa, Asia, the Pacific and the Far East are still alive, many with children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. For them, and their descendants and family the opportunity to see a husband's, father's, grand dad or great grand dad's grave and the countryside where as a young man he fought and died is to make a unique connection with the past and a way to understand who they have become today.

 Poppy - Spirit of Remembrance It is a Journey of Remembrance that brings both great pride and impermeable sadness for one of so many young lives cut short.

BattleField Tours
Poppy - Spirit of Remembrance  For soldiers, historians and students to take a battlefield tour is to enter a unique lecture hall or class room - one that comes with mud and rain - or dust and sunshine - and where the hills and gulleys take your breath away as you slog and scramble across them. To stand in the exact spot where soldiers fought and died - and often your relative - is not only a unique experience - it is a privilege - and to take a tour is to honour these men.

Poppy - Spirit of Remembrance  Men and women having been visiting battlefields since the days of antiquity – at the Alma on September 20, 1854 the aristocrats of Sevastopol drove out to the heights to watch the battle – confident that the Russian troops would defeat the Anglo French forces.  It is said however that the terrifying cheer from the kilted Highlanders as they reached the crest could be heard above the noise of battle.  Little surprise then that the battlefield tour ended rather rapidly for the Russian nobility as the jumped into their coaches and raced back to the safety of Sevastopol.

Poppy - Spirit of Remembrance  Today Battlefield and Remembrance Tours with Spirit of Remembrance are a great deal less hazardous but with our experienced and knowledgeable guides the fear, courage and intensity of combat can be recaptured  as travellers stand on the ground where these events took place.
