Second Day On The Somme

Today was our second day on the Somme but our first day of walking. We started the day at Ovillers and made our way to Theipval by way of Authulle. At Theipval we were lucky to arrive just as there was a service starting. The Millar band from Belfast were marching up to the memorial, it was beautiful.  After a lovely lunch we continued our walk from The Ulster Tower to Saint Pierre Divion, Hamel to Newfoundland Park. One of our walkers, Debra is from Canada so this final stop was especially important for her.

We have had a fantastic day with some brilliant people, including our guide Iain McHenry. We are looking forward to completing our walk tomorrow.
