New Talks Added For 2010

I have added a number of new talks to my catalogue for 2010.

They include ‘Railway Walks’ highlighting walks along or parallel to railway lines in the Lake District, Lancashire, France and Belgium. My talk ‘Battlefields & Poppy Fields’ highlights the battlefields in northern France and the Low Countries – from Dunkirk to Normandy, the Somme and Ypres, to Crecy and Waterloo.

A visit to a village near Limoges in France prompted the talk ‘Death of a village – Oradour-sur-Glane, June 1944’ and chronicles the destruction of a whole village (including the killing of 642 civilians) by a German SS Panzer Regiment on their way to Normandy in 1944.
