Personal & Family Tours

Is there a "War hero in your Family"? Come and find out with Spirit of Remembrance. Exploring family history, as the growth of publications and television programmes has shown, can be absorbing and fascinating.
Frank Baldwin and John Ross specialise in taking private tours - they are driver/guides and military history researchers who will be able to develop your family history and create the perfect personal tour.  
In the 20th Century few families in Europe and North America were untouched by the impact of the two World Wars.  

The cost varies depending upon the duration, where you wish to visit and the type of accommodation, however you should expect to pay about £500 per person per day,

(minimum 2 people).  

We specialise in luxury platinum tours which include Mercedes     Viano 6 seater and magnificent chateau accommodation - the sky is literally the limit, we can include helicopter and fix winged tours so you can see the lay of the land.

In Europe the lines of white headstones in military cemeteries tell the sad tale of sacrifice.  However conflict has many facets and not all of it is grim - the children and grandchildren of the GI brides who left the United Kingdom for a new life in the USA are discovering their British roots and also the ETO – European Theatre of Operations in which their ancestors served.  For British, Commonwealth and Allied families a personal tour can be journey of discovery.  Spirit of Remembrance will take the traveller across the country and back through time until they meet the young man or woman who went to war 70 or almost 100 years ago and learn about his life and the conflict in which he or she played a part.  

Arthur Lawrence (seen right) is now 97 years old and living in Kent, a veteran of the famous "Forgotten Army" who fought in Burma.  Arthur talks with his great niece Melody Foreman of his experiences in October edition of  TN24.  Detailed below is a photo of Arthur and his friends - are you related to them?
