Hoping to gain an understanding of my grandfather’s experience with the 44th Battalion during WW1, I booked Sacred Ground Tours. I only did the one day tour visiting places around the Somme including Villers-Bretonneux, but it was extensive in what it covered. Phil and Aurora were very knowledgeable and presented the information with great passion and understanding, so that it was easy to visualise what had taken place all those years ago. The Monash Museum was incredible – could have spent a day there. Visiting the many smaller cemeteries and monuments provided a picture of the tragic loss of life, although so hard to imagine while in the tranquil countryside of today.
