    Salopian Club Five Day Battlefield Tour to Normandy

    Following the great success of the 2014 battlefield tour the Salopian Club, in conjunction with Anglia Tours, have planned a new five day Normandy tour from Thursday 15 September - Monday 19 September 2016.

    The tour will follow a completely new itinerary, which can be viewed on this link. It focuses on D-Day and the Normandy campaign, in which the British 2nd army were led by Old Salopian Lieutenant-General Sir Miles Dempsey.

    The trip will again be led by highly respected military historian Peter Caddick-Adams (Ch 74-78). 

    Early booking is highly recommended, as numbers are limited and the last tour sold out.

    The cost is likely to be £578 per person, based on two sharing a double room. There is a single supplement of £100. The overall cost may change a little, depending on final numbers.

    If you would like to book, please print off the booking form here and send it, along with your deposit for £100 per person, to The Salopian Club, The Schools, Shrewsbury SY3 7BA.

    For further information please contact Janet Scholes on 01743 280892 or email jscholes@shrewsbury.org.uk
