Members of The Western Front Association will be aware of the 'Virtual Tours' we have invested in, as an antidote to the inability of being able to visit the battlefields. These tours are being provided through a partnership with our friends at Battle Guide Virtual Tours.
These tours 'sold out' very rapidly and approximately sixty members are enjoying these 'live' experiences on a fortnightly basis. These tours are being staged in a chronological sequence, with a tour of a 1914 battlefield being the first to be undertaken, with 1915, 1916, 1917 and two covering 1918 in the pipeline.
As promised, we are making these available to members for free (after the live event) but with a slight 'time lag' after each tour. We are delighted to now make the first tour available. A four minute 'clip' of this is available below. (Click the right pointing arrow in the bottom left corner of the image)
The full virtual tour (which lasts for an hour) is available to WFA members only and is accessible via the 'members area' on the website. In order to view this in full, you will need to log in to the website using your personal log in details. Once you have done so, simply click onto 'Virtual Tours' and then to the 1914 tour.
