Anniversary Tours

The 1st July 2016 marked the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the battle of the Somme. Sadly, not everyone was fortunate enough to get tickets to the memorial service in France. However, to mark the anniversary of the end of the battle on 18th November 1916, a smaller commemoration (non ticket) ceremony is being held at the Thiepval Memorial. For more details of how to join us for this special event and anniversary tour click here.

In 2017, we have anniversary tours for 100 years of Vimy Ridge and Arras; the Battle of Messines and the Battle of Passchendaele (Third Ypres).

We also commemorate ‘Operation Jubilee’ and the 75th anniversary of Dieppe. Click here for more details.

To commemorate these battles, Rifleman Tours has constructed some truly memorable tours.
