Going Back: Pilgrimages to the Western Front by Tim Lynch
11 May

This talk examines the growth of battlefield tourism after the war as veterans returned to the fields where they had fought. It features, among other stories, that of the enormous operation mounted to enable Canadian veterans to attend the opening of Vimy Ridge and looks at why these trips were so important to veterans trying to make sense of their war.

Members and non-members of The Western Front Association are equally welcome. Any new visitors are guaranteed a friendly atmosphere and a warm welcome from a group of like-minded enthusiasts.
