2012 Commemorative Tour

There are still places available on the 2012 FFFAIF Members’ Western Front and Gallipoli Commemorative Tours.

If you have always dreamt of visiting the hallowed ground in the footsteps of the Diggers of the Great War, we can get you there!

Join like minded people on our 14 day Western Front Commemorative Tour, which visits all the major Australian and other battlefields in Belgium and France. Our main battle ground focus this year is Fromelles, Bullecourt, Pozieres/Mouquet Farm and Passchendaele/Broodseinde Ridge, but smaller engagements will be explored.

Our tour starts in Ieper, Belgium on the 14th July 2012. Price for the Western Front Tour is $3,200 and includes all land based travel, accommodation, all breakfasts, a number of special lunches and dinners, battlefield touring on luxury coach, local and English speaking guides and tour ‘goody bag’ (excluding air fares).

As Families and Friends of the First AIF, our main focus is that of the men and women who served and in many cases died during the Great War. Our historians and researchers will be with us on the ground to offer extensive specialised information and knowledge.

In addition, we will have the opportunity to meet and greet European FFFAIF Members and visit the new Bullecourt Museum, village of Vignacourt – home to the ‘Lost Diggers’ and attend the commemorations at Fromelles (Pheasant Wood) Military Cemetery on the 19th July.

Special Requests and commemorations: The FFFAIF Commemorative Tours have the flexibility to streamline the journey to suit the participating members. Every effort is made to incorporate ‘special requests’ and many personal commemorations are included during visits to cemeteries and battlefield locations.

For those who would like to extend their holiday or travels, we also have a Gallipoli Commemorative Tour (Extension), departing 3rd July 2012. This tour is 13 nights and visits all battlefields of the Gallipoli Campaign, with Australian and local Turkish Historians and battlefield guides.

Price for the Gallipoli Extension Tour is $1,790. The tour costs includes all accommodation (Gallipoli and Istanbul), coach travel, all breakfasts, most meals, battlefield guides and tour diary (excluding airfares). This tour must be booked in conjunction with Western Front Commemorative Tour.
