We are expecting high demand this year, so places will be allocated on a first come first served basis. If you or a family member would like to apply, please email or telephone us at your earliest opportunity. Alternatively use the contact form below.
We have built a hard-working support team of volunteers who go out of their way to ensure the journey and the stay in France is as comfortable as possible for all veterans and their companions and their companions. This includes a core team of volunteer medics from the Queen Alexandra’s Royal Army Nursing Corps (QARANC) and two General Practitioners who will all be on hand in case any medical assistance is required.
Our volunteers all share the same passion for the veteran community and consider it a real privilege to be able to share this experience with so many ladies and gentlemen who took part in the Normandy Campaign.
