In the Footsteps of John McCrae Tour 2018

April 27 - May 5

Honour Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, 100 years after his passing, by participating in a guided tour tracing his overseas service, and paying your respects during a memorial service at his gravesite.

Don’t miss this exclusive opportunity to follow in the footsteps of Canadian soldier, doctor and poet Lt. Col. John McCrae, exploring sites where he tended to the wounded and wrote In Flanders Fields, and visiting important First World War landmarks and historical sites, including Essex Field Dressing Station, the Somme battlefield, and the Canadian National Vimy Memorial.  Something all Canadians should experience at least once in their lifetime.

Lt. Col. John McCrae scholar Bev Dietrich will escort the tour group, and provide on-site interpretation. Dietrich was special guest in Belgium in 1995 for the 80th anniversary of the writing of the poem In Flanders Fields.

The trip departs Canada on April 27, 2018 and returns May 5, 2018. The cost is $ $3,895 per person based on twin/double occupancy.  A $750 deposit is required at time of booking. Reserve your place by December 15, 2017.
