We will begin the drive with a talk about the battle of Messines Ridge. First arriving at Hill 60 and the Caterpillar Crater we will talk more about the stressful underground war and the mining and tunnelling involved.
We will then drive to the German trench at Bayernwald to spend a little time walking through and discovering a little more what it may have been like for those soldiers.
We will then move on to one of the sites of the famous Christmas Truce football/soccer match site of 1914 and see the memorial next to Prowse Point Cemetery. To finish, we will visit the little church of Messines and the crypt and discover it's connection to 4 historical figures!
