Coach trip to Somme


The Robert Quigg VC Commemoration Society are organising a coach trip to France and Flanders from October 2-7 2014.

The trip will provide an opportunity to visit sites such as the Ulster Tower, the Menin Gate, Thiepval and much more.

There will also be an opportunity for individuals to request a cemetery visit offering a chance to visit a particular grave such as that of a family member. Guests can also join with the Society in remembering the heroic actions of Robert Quigg, at the place where his Victoria Cross was won.

The 6 day tour is based in Lille and costs £499, including accommodation and all travel, as well as some meals. An experienced guide will accompany the group and travel throughout will be provided by Ulsterbus Tours.

For more information or to book a space, contact the Society by email at or by phone through Leonard Quigg, Chairman, on 07891753473.
