I made 2 trips with the Great War as a theme. One trip I made recently with my youngest daughter Elizabeth. The other trip I made in August 2014 with my husband and my 2 youngest children.

I thought it was important for our 2 youngest children to join us, as I wanted to make them aware what happened 100 years ago and which part our country played in this war the whole world was affected by.
