French Flanders & Loos Battlefield Tours
This area does not have the visual beauty of the Somme or the pathos of the Ypres Salient, but it contains areas of significance to the British who fought here throughout the war and the Australians, who first came into contact with the German defenders at Fromelles in July 1916.
