In response to increasing demand from its customers, Leger Holidays, is including seven new battlefield tours in its 2012 brochure and reintroducing The Falklands War itinerary – in light of the conflict’s 30th anniversary.
The 12-day tour visits the conflict’s key sites over both the West and East Islands including Port Howard, where aircraft wreckages still remain; Pebble Island, where the British SAS raided an Argentine airstrip and also Stanley, with an opportunity to join the town’s Liberation Day ceremony.
The itinerary is one of the 50 that features in the company's latest collection, some of which are ‘Tours of Remembrance’ offered in partnership with The Royal British Legion.
As an example of prices, a five-day Victoria Cross Heroes of WWI tours costs from £369 per person and follows the stories of some of the 627 men who were awarded the Victoria Cross for gallantry and bravery in the Great War.
Other WWI and WWII battlefield tours available include trips to Germany, Belgium, Italy, Jersey and France. Some of the tours focus on specific battles such as The Battle of the Bulge, or on specific campaigns like Operation Market Garden, whilst others focus in on people, such as Anne Frank, Oscar Schindler or the war poets, or are timed to coincide with particular anniversaries.
