Camalou Battlefield Tours
Camalou Battlefield Tours

Being knowledgeable about the Great War is one thing, but to be able to convey that understanding and knowledge to others is another. We have always enjoyed speaking to people about our interest in the Great War. To do so is a work of love.

Almost all our life we lived in the ancient town of Ypres (spelled 'Ieper' in Flemish which is the native language in Flanders, in the north of Belgium).

Our passionate interest in the Great War was kindled by fond childhood memories of being taken around the battlefield by our grandfather, themselves veterans of the Great War. Our interest in the terrible battles that ravaged our land between 1914 and 1918 is founded on a humanitarian empathy for those who suffered, as opposed to the finer points of military strategy.
