Military History Tours Armistice Day Centenary Tour 13 November 2018
Today was our break from the battlefields and the sun shone. Most of the tour group visited Brugge and browsed the town. The old buildings were a sight to behold as were the canals and local birdlife. A couple of adventurous souls climbed the Belfry of Bruges tower, 83 metres, 366 steps, others hired a horse and carriage. Almost all returned with a bag of special chocolates.
While the rest of us were in Brugge, Don Shearman and John Lee found and recorded a tribute to the ancestor of one of our Tour 1 guests who did not make it this far north.
Later in the evening, we witnessed ceremony at Menin Gate. And saw a computer (video) savvy dog at our hotel.
