    Not sure how i missed this thread , yes i do work as a Battlefied Guide for Leger , i came back last week from Guiding our Panzers in Normandy which is a superb Tour about the Tank fighting during the Battle.

    I have guided the Dambusters / colditz / Great Escape Tour as well , now called Air War Europe and have to say it is brilliant ! Who was your guide Nick ?

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
