Our Partners - The International Guild of Battlefield Guides

 

Battlefield Guides

The Commission is delighted to be working in partnership with the The International Guild of Battlefield Guides, which was established in 2003.

Members of the Guild take thousands of individuals to the battlefields each year, working across all areas of guiding - school groups, military groups, veterans groups and the general public.
