OS HISTORY SOCIETY: 26th-30th APRIL ARNHEM TOUR ūüá≥ūüáĪ

Arnhem1

Following the great success of the WW1 Pilgrimage, the OS Club plans to launch its first History Society trip from 26th to 30th April 2023 to Arnhem, Netherlands, and the surrounding area where there was some significant OS involvement during WW2. The tour will also offer the chance to learn more about the history and culture of the area in addition to paying tribute to the previous generations of Sedberghians. We will be retaining the services of Dr Bruce Cherry who was so instrumental in making the Pilgrimage tours a success.
