Have a good trip!

We wish the Salonika Campaign Society 2018 Victory Tour party – who should be arriving at Thessaloniki about now – a successful visit to northern Greece and FYROM over the next ten days.

They will be attending official centenary commemorations and walking the ground fought over by the BSF in September 1918. You can find out what you are missing on our website here! If this whets your appetite for a visit to the battlefields and other places associated with the campaign, be sure to keep an eye on our website and sign-up to our occasional email newsletter – The New Balkan News (follow the link below) – where tours are advertised.
