SCS Battlefields Tours in 2020

Next year there will be a single Society tour, running in September so as to coincide with the annual official commemorations. The reason for only running a single tour next year is due to the poor response to the spring
SCS tour run through Battle Honours last April. We hope to try running another tour with Battle Honours in 2021 but can only do so if it is supported by members.

In the meantime, outline details of the September 2020 tour will be available in the near future here on the Society website, the New Balkan News e-newsletter (subscribe below) and the ‘Salonika 1915-1918’ Facebook page.

In addition, The Cultural Experience plan to run a Salonika battlefield tour (26 April–1 May 2020).

Robin Braysher joined the SCS in 2003 and from 2008 has been the Society's web editor. His interest in the campaign comes from his grandfather, Fred, who served as a cyclist with the BSF from 1915 to 1917, mainly in the Struma valley. Robin hands over the role in October 2021 to Andy Hutt. Andy's interest in the campaign comes from his grandfather, Arthur, who served as a Royal Engineer from 1916-1918.
