ATG0192 But these tours are not just about sadness and sorrow. Albatross has included many other sights and highlights of France and Belgium, to create a captivating tour. Relax as they show you the grand boulevards of Paris, the monumental cathedral of Amiens, the Cloth Hall and Menin Gate of Ypres and the cobblestoned streets of picture- perfect Bruges – it’s all in the Albatross Travel Group’s recentlyreleased 28-page, 2010 commemorative tour brochure. For more information and bookings, visit your local RACT Travelworld branch or call us on 1300 368 111. All quiet on the Western Front W Serre Cemetery on the Somme hile Gallipoli remains an abiding national symbol of Australian and New Zealand courage and sacrifice, more and more people are discovering that among the muddy battlefields of the Somme and Flanders there is another huge, and possibly greater, story to be told – a story of valour and fortitude, amidst the carnage of human destruction like none that had been seen before. The Albatross Travel Group bring together years of experience and the expertise of a team of specially-trained tour managers and war historians, to create an unforgettable Western Front experience. With them, you’ll retrace the steps of the ANZACs through the Allied battles of the Western Front, from the staggering devastation of the trench warfare of the Flanders battlefields to the moving Last Post under the Menin Gate in Ypres. Standing in morning mist on the damp, flat clay of the Somme, you feel you can almost hear the sergeants pushing their young sappers – ‘Dig mates, go deep with your trenches!’ You’ll stand in awe among the lines of neat white gravestones – each a marker for one of the millions of soldiers who died on the battlefield.
