  • Description: On the anniversary of the start of World War I, this journey to the most poignant places in southern England, northern France, Belgium and The Netherlands has even greater significance. It's Insider moments like… taking a personal moment to reflect on the huge loss of people and the sacrifices made during two world wars. Travelling to the historic Normandy D-Day beaches; listening to a haunting Last Post played at the Menin Gate in Ypres, where you can buy a wreath to lay in memory of the men that lost their lives; and often seeing sights important to your nation, like Fromelles, where thousands died in one of the darkest 24 hours of Australian military history.
