During those years i have guided for several local tour companies and have a wealth of experience and knowledge. I am used to guiding groups of all sizes, from coach groups to individuals. Some of my previous clients include the BBC, The Vimy Foundation, groups from the British Army, SHAPE and NATO to name but a few. I have even taken Field Marshal Sir Douglas Haig on a tour – well the famous actor who portrayed him in the BBC TV series Blackadder Goes Forth, the late Mr Geoffrey Palmer.
I was also the chairman of the Royal British Legion Ypres Branch from 2014 – 2016.
The Great War for me is not just an interest but a passion, and has been since my youth. I am honoured to be a guide in the Ypres Salient. It is very important that the story of the men and women of the Great War continues to be told and that their story should not be dimmed or clouded by the ravages of time. Never have the following words been more relevant:
“We Will Remember Them”
