Major Richard Peters

About Richard:

Richard Peters was commissioned from RMA Sandhurst in 1967 into the Durham Light Infantry.  He has had a keen interest in Military History and specifically battlefield touring from his mid teens, when he was given a copy of a First World War classic, ‘with a machine gun to Cambrai’, the autobiography of an underage private soldier.

In 1989 he was the exchange student at the Spanish Army Staff College in Madrid and then the Assistant Defence Attache at the British Embassy in Madrid.  This provided an exceptional opportunity to study and later guide around the battlefields of the Peninsula War. His primary interest is World War 1.  

He has guided tours to all the main battlefields of the BEF, and enjoys the research that will personalise a tour, particularly family history.    A ‘golden moment’ was to lead one tour party to the location where a traveller’s great great uncle had won a gallantry medal,
