Spirit of Remembrance Ltd. ANZAC Day Ex.Paris (25 Apr 2020)

ANZAC Day Ex.Paris (25 Apr 2020)

Introduction: Whilst the Dawn Service at Gallipoli is famous the world over with both Australians and New Zealanders as the most revered of the overseas Anzac Day ceremonies, the ceremony at Villers-Bretonneux, first initiated in 1998 has rapidly gained ground as "the" ceremony to attend if you are in Europe or the UK. On 25 April 2020, it is the 102nd anniversary of the Second battle of Villers-Bretonneux.  Villers-Bretonneux is famous as the area where the Germans nearly broke through the Allied defences during the German spring offensive of 1918. The German High Command worked out that if they captured Amiens, then push quickly to the coast they would split the Allied Forces in two and win the war – or at least sue for peace on their terms. Their first major offensive had actually reached to within ten miles of Amiens, before being stopped in the first battle of Villers-Bretonneux. Brigadier General Grogan VC,who saw the attack on Villers-Bretonneux, described the successful counter attack by night at short notice across unknown and difficult ground as "perhaps the greatest individual feat of the war". The Allied Supreme Commander, Marshal Foch, referred to the "altogether astonishing valiance" (valour) of the Australians.

ANZAC's Remembered (20-25 Apr 2020)

 (Includes Anzac Day Dawn Service at Villers-Bretonneux on the 25 April 2020   When The Great War came to an end in 1918 Australia was left to come to terms with a war which, on the Western Front alone, had cost Australia 48,000 dead (* and including Gallipoli, over 60,000 dead) and over 156,000 wounded.  Militarily, the ANZAC reputation stood sky-high at the end of the war and along with the Canadians, they were regarded as among the most elite fighting troops in the British Expeditionary Force – tough, battle hardened and ruthless, they were greatly feared by the Germans and grudgingly admired even by their nemesis - the British High Command. On this very special tour we follow in their footsteps to the places where the Australian reputation was established on the Western Front between 1916 and 1918. Along the way we shall hear tales of enormous courage, endurance and sacrifice that will both inspire and humble, culminating in the amazing and very moving Villers-Bretonneux Anzac Day Ceremony.

Anzacs Footsteps

This new and very special 3 night/4 day commemorative tour series closely follows the Australian actions on the WW1 Australian sector of the Western Front. Imagine a ditch – zig-zagging from Melbourne to Canberra – about 700km – this was the Western Front in WW1 - stretching from Belgium to the other side of France. Some 295,000 Australians served on the Western Front where over 46,000 died and 134,000 were wounded or captured. As a proportion of its fighting force of men who were actually exposed to a theatre of war, it is widely accepted that Australia's armed forces in WW1 suffered more deaths, more hospitalisations for wounding, illness and injury than the armies of Britain, Germany, France, Canada or the United States.  The fighting prowess, bravery, mateship, and immense sacrifice of our soldiers here was - and will remain forever legendary. At the end of the war it was officially noted that "probably in no other year have Australians influenced the destiny of the world as Australian soldiers did by their achievements in these (and later) weeks of 1918." Marshal Foch (a prominent French General) reflected that  "the passionate valour of the Australians served as an example to the whole world You  saved Amiens, and you saved France". (2nd Battle of Villers-Bretonneux, Anzac Day, 1918).

Hellfire Pass: Opening the gates of history

Hellfire Pass: (Part of the notorious WW2 'Death Railway') (Copy: Courtesy DVA) For the men who built the Hellfire Pass - The Aussies, British, Dutch and other Allied POWs it was the most well-known of many notorious sites along the Thai-Burma railway. Named for both the terrible, brutal conditions under which prisoners worked and the fact that at night the scene was lit by carbide lights, bamboo fires and hessian wicks in containers full of diesel oil, Hellfire Pass, remarked one former prisoner -  'looked like a scene out of Dante's inferno'. Located at Konyu, Thailand, Hellfire Pass consisted of two cuttings; the first measured 460-metres long by 7.6 metres deep, the second was 73-metres long and 24-metres deep. The work here, which involved drilling, blasting and digging through solid rock, was dangerous and terribly brutal with terrible beatings handed out by the Japanese guards at the slightest reason. Thousands died during the building of the hellish project: 

Spirit of Remembrance Ltd. Krakow - Auschwitz - 2017 - DP

Krakow - Auschwitz - 2017 - DP

Join us on a tour to Krakow and the heart of Hitler’s reign of terror - Auschwitz. There are few names that stand for the horror of the Nazi reign over Europe quite like that of Auschwitz. A death camp cannot tell the true nature of a place that turned killing into a mechanized process, humans into a raw material and murder into a factory system. The attempted genocide of Jews, Gypsies and other demonized groups is one which we all still find hard to explain. How did a rational intelligent nation like the Germans allow themselves to get into a position where this could take place? How did a man take part in what went on here by day and go home to play with his children in the evening? How did the camp function and eventually fall? How did you survive this place? What do we learn about ourselves when we visit this place? This is a special tour not to be missed as we tell an incredible story about a time and place – and more than one nation.

Raids, Rehearsals and Reverses - 2017 - DP

The sacrifice and losses suffered in Operation Jubilee the amphibious raid on the French port of Dieppe on the morning of August 19, 1942 are seared into the Canadian national psyche. Of the nearly 5,000 men of the 2nd Canadian Division who landed nearly 3,600 men had been killed, wounded or captured by midday. In time and space these were losses as bad or worse than anything on the Western Front in World War I. It was also a morning that saw three Victoria Crosses won by a Colonel, a Captain and a Padre – for courage and selfless loyalty. We will return to Dieppe to honour the men who fought and died that summer morning.

It was the longest battle on German ground during World War II, and the longest single battle the U.S. Army has ever fought.  Fought in cold and wet conditions it tested the endurance of men to their limits, and sometimes beyond. The battle of the Ardennes December 1944-January 1945, was one of the largest battles of the Second World War.  The German surprise attack on the weak US force in the Ardennes was a dramatic holding the sector is one of the most dramatic episodes in the Second World War.
