All Quiet on the Western Front – October 2008



Hotel: ??? Tournai


Seems this place is no longer in business, I suspect it may have closed due to the owners suffering tourist trauma from a certain rowdy group in 2008...


The hotel itself was nice enough, an old fashioned family style place, ideally situated in the city centre, just a stone's throw from an excellent Irish bar, which stayed open very late.


Battlefield visits:


First day - Ypres and Passchendaele; Sanctuary Wood Trench Museum, Hill 60, Hooge Crater Café and Museum, Tyne Cot Cemetery, Vancouver Corner 'Brooding Soldier' memorial. Langemarck German Cemetery, Ypres - Last Post Ceremony at the Menin Gate.


Second day - The Somme - Delville Wood, La Boisselle - Lochnagar mine crater, Newfoundland Park and the Thiepval Memorial to the Missing.
