I am the local contact for the War Research Society, run mainly by retired and serving police officers and ex-servicemen as a charitable hobby.

It was founded many years ago and supports a number of charities including the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal Fund and veterans.

We run trips to the battlefields and cemeteries of Northern Europe, namely the Somme, Ypres, the Ardennes, Dieppe, Normandy, Arnhem, Nijmegen, Berlin, Belsen, Soltau, Reichswald, Rheinberg, Colditz Castle, the Dambusters Raid, Buchenwald, Prague and Auschwitz. All trips have an experienced guide and conducted tours of the battlefields and visits to requested cemeteries are made.

We welcome inquiries and ask only for a medium-sized, stamped addressed envelope so details can be forwarded.
