I am writing rather belatedly to thank you for all you did on the DHF Tour to Dixmude. I have been on a lot of tours since my first one in the mid 1990's but this DHF one was different. I much enjoyed the talks that you gave at each stand - whether on Haig, the units involved, the military situation, cemetery architecture or garden design(!). But the main thing that made this tour special was the interaction between you and those members of the group who had real expertise - we had some really great discussions. Yet you kept us all to time and I never felt that we were rushed. In my experience, not every guide is comfortable with this approach! I do not want to sound patronising but I felt I should thank you particularly for the way in which you managed this aspect of the Tour - which I suspect is not easy though you made it appear so.
