Calais - Somme Battlefields

On Friday morning we woke to a fresh -1 degrees and headed out to the Somme Battlefields stopping along the way to stock up on lunch and snacks and lucky enough to see a magnificent sunrise. We met our guide John Anderson.
First stop was Poziers where 23,000 Australians died at war. We then toured on to other sites including Thiepval, 1st Division Australian Memorial, Dernancourt Cemetary, walked through the trenches, drove by several memorials. John was fantastic explaining much history to us.
