The Battle of Fromelles Tour Map

Usually I don’t tell you in advance which cemeteries we shall be visiting on our tours, but on this occasion you get to see the tour map before the tour.  This is where we are off to next, and if you compare it with the map for last year’s Tour of the Nursery, you can see that this tour begins very close to where we started that one; Y Farm Cemetery, where the Nursery Tour began, is a little to the south west of Bois-Grenier, and Rue-David Military Cemetery, where our next tour will begin, is just a little further west.  From there, though, we shall be heading into new territory, continuing west, and then south, until we arrive in Fromelles itself, before we finish with a brief visit to Sailly-sur-la-Lys.

      Edward, I think you are going to find this tour of great interest, as it has a lot to do with the missing of Fromelles and where their bodies are buried. Watch this space.
