Accompanied by 2 chaperones, an Australian historian and their mascot Trooper Jones, the 8 students visited key sites important to our Australian war history, including attending the dawn service at the Australian War Memorial at Villers-Bretonneux, France. New to this year’s tour was a visit to the amazing Naours Caves and Cobbers Night, a wonderful celebration between the French and Australians. Prior to the tour the students and their chaperones researched the lives of 3 service people from WWI and an earlier conflict. These service people were honoured on tour through a personalised commemorative service at their gravesite or memorial site. A number of participants also commemorated an ancestor making the service even more significant.
