Battlefield Tour - Harry's Flanders

A Battlefield Tour Company has designed a tour that is based on Harry's experiences, visiting the key locations mentioned in the blog.

Soverign War tours have kindly invited me along for a 3 day tour starting 30th May.

Jono Wood has also produced more of his topographical views so that the reader can get a very good idea of the lie of the land in Harry's latest location, the Asiago Plateau.

Hello,

I just finished reading the blog so far and wanted to say what a great idea this is. :)

I definitely look forward to read and learn more about Harry's fate.

Btw, it was an article in my local newspaper that brought me here.

I love this blog! I check it ever day. My only comment is that I cannot see a way to e-mail the blogmaster, and I think a little note at the beginning of the blog telling us when we can expect Harry's next letter would be helpful. Keep up the great work!

I only started reading this blog a couple of months ago. It's great. I've always had a fascination with the first World War. I think of it as the forgotten war. I did a history project on Paschendale in school as a teenager and to read letters from someone who actually experienced it is amazing. Like others, although I know Harry is long gone, I still hope that he makes it through the next few months to the end of the war.

Hello,
I was in Flanders a few years ago. Almost 100 years after WW1, the terror still hangs in the air. This is something I never experienced before and I think you have to be there to understand what I mean. You even have a personal connection to the events. This will be a very moving trip.

Sounds like a great idea! Very sorry I won't be able to join you; I can only imagine how it'll feel, to stand where Harry stood. Please take lots of photos to share here on Harry's blog!
