'They opened the doors to the battlefields'

We began our searching for, recording, photographing and describing British war memorials, in near Europe and beyond, in the 1970s. 

Our findings were used in the hundreds of battlefield tours that we personally conducted, and then were gathered together in our guide-books.

The books aim to make battlefield touring easy and instructive, whether travelling on the ground or from a sofa at home. Both forms of travel are possible because we locate every memorial using GPS.

For some years we were responsible for the organising and conducting of Pilgrimages for the Royal British Legion. We have borne in mind that fundamental wish to see where ones ancestors fought and died, by telling the stories of individuals throughout our books.

Have a good trip.
