Wandering on the Somme
A companion talk to my Wandering in Flanders Fields talk, visiting the known and less well-known sites of The Somme to commemorate the 100th anniversary in 2016. Be inspired by today's beautifully restored landscape that witnessed momentous days
during the First World War. The talk contains
other sights to see in the beautiful Somme area of France – be assured it’s “way more than the usual mud and trenches”.
This talk was given at the ACM of the West Sussex Federation of Womens Institutes in autumn 2016 to astonishing reponse.
