The visitation of Anzac Cove and the Gallipoli Peninsula in the Dardanelles over ANZAC Day (25th April) has become something of a pilgrimage for many Australians, especially in recent years … and next year, 2015, is the 100th Commemoration of the Landings at Anzac Cove in World War I, and it is turning into a huge year for attendance, with actual allowed places being drawn by Ballot.
If you would like to visit Gallipoli over the 100th Anniversary we have a fantastic tour available, with limited spaces, and the ability to help get you to the formal services if you are a ballot ticket holder, or you can join us at an informal gathering away from the cove.
Just a quick announcement to let everyone know that our Tour Departure for the 72nd Anniversary of the Guadal Canal Campaign is now available and details can be viewed here!
I thought I would start by introducing you to some passionate military historians and battlefield guides who can spend weeks, if not months, of each year walking and guiding interested people across the battlefield sites of the world. I was invited to join the Guild after having worked in association with a fellow member. We were touring the Western Front with a Battlefield Study Group from ADFA – RMC (Australian Defence Force Academy – Royal Military College Duntroon Canberra) when I was invited to consider membership. Why may you ask ? Well it’s as simple as being tested and put through the hoops, and being qualified by your peers, proving to yourself you know what you’re talking about and can deliver it in the field to clients in a way that brings the battlefield alive, they feel it, touch it and can even smell the battles of old. Many people visit battlefields for varying reasons – general interest, to study history in the raw, or follow in their relatives’ foot steps. What’s important is to do it with a professional battlefields guide. The Guild’s website tells the complete story: gbg-international.com Cheers, Dennis – Old Sea Dog Weathers
