WW2 Battlefield Tour
This tour follows the Queen's and East Surreys through their time with the British Expeditionary Force over the period Apr-May 1940.

The Tour starts with the Battles around the River Escaut with both Regiments 1st Surreys and 1/5th and 1/6th Queens between 16 – 22 May 1940 and follows the story as these Regiments battled their way back to Dunkirk to be evacuated by the ‘little ships’ around 30 May 1940.
