Further to this - we have also been advised that an attendance cap of only 8000 people in total can attend the 2018 Villers-Bretonneux Anzac Centenary service due to security constraints. This will be probably be the most "in demand" ceremony of all the events, and we are already quite heavily booked. Further to this, registration is not open yet (at 01 March 2017) and we expect it once opened to fill in a matter of weeks, if not days. We strongly suggest that if you wish to to attend this 'once in a lifetime' ceremony that you register on one of our 2018 VB Anzac Day tours so the moment we are advised registration is open for the event we can submit your details to DVA for approval to attend the ceremony. DON'T miss out!

The Flanders Poppy - The Spirit of Remembrance About the Anzac Day Battle at Villers Bretonneux, April 25 1918: (link)

The Flanders Poppy - The Spirit of Remembrance 2018 - and the centenary of the historic 2nd Battle of Villers-Bretonneux on Anzac Day, 2018, when the Australians forever changed the course of WW1 and *saved Amiens. (It was also the first tank to tank battle of WW1.) *The German High Command worked out that if they captured Amiens, (the major city of the Somme) then push quickly to the coast they would split the Allied Forces in half and win the war - or at least sue for peace on their terms. Their first major offensive had actually reached to within ten miles of Amiens, before being stopped at Villers-Bretonneux.

Brigadier General Grogan VC, who saw the attack on Villers-Bretonneux, described the successful Australian counter attack by night at short notice across unknown and difficult ground as "perhaps the greatest individual feat of the war". The Allied Supreme Commander, Marshal Foch, referred to the "altogether astonishing valiance" (valour) of the Australians.

Come with us on one of the most auspicious and historic centenary remembrance events in the history of Australia. Advance interest in the event is already intense, with thousands already making plans to attend this 'once in a lifetime' event along with dignitaries and heads of state from all over the world. Accommodation space is already most limited for attendance at this very special event. We would be delighted if you can join us for this 'once in a lifetime' event, honouring the heritage of all Australians.
