My Mum and I just completed a tour of both the Somme and Flanders fields with the intention of following our great uncles movements and untimely death on the western front.
Phil was great to communicate with when booking and also went above and beyond to research our great uncle, and forward onto us his Red Cross reports and statements regarding how, where and when he was killed
Although sacred grounds tours will be tailored to suit your wants, Our Somme battle field tour with Phil gave us a brilliant in depth overview of the areas in which or relative was lost. Our tour concluded with a visit to Gardiners grave at Heath cemetery and a quick tour of the immediate farmland area in which we believed Gardy may have been killed based off his Red Cross reports.
Day 2 was out in Flanders field with Mathilde starting with a thorough look through Fromelles, up into Messiness ridge (Hill 60), polygon wood, Ypres salient, Tyne Cot Cemetery, dinner in Ypres and tour concluding with the last post ceremony at Menin gate before heading back to Arras.
Mathilde is a qualified historian with a masters based on WW1 and was brilliant in passing on all of her knowledge to us in simple terms.
I would definatly recommend Sacred Grounds to everyone looking to gain knowledge and can happily say that if the opportunity arises again, I would definatly complete more battlefield tours with These guys
