    I would love to visit Dunkirk, I have driven past but never spent any time looking at the war sites. The Dunkirk evacuation was such an emotional story that I would love to spend some time walking in the soldiers foot steps.

    I have only recently discovered that my great-uncle was killed aged 20 in April 1915 and that he is buried at Mazingarbe communal Cemetery Extension in France so I really want to visit his grave there. Plus, my husband's grandfather is buried at Lijssenthoek Military Cemetery in Belgium which we have visited before but are anxious to visit again. Also a visit to experience the Last Post ceremony at the Menin Gate, Ypres is a must!

    It would have to be Loos. Although I was born in England, I've lived in Dundee for over 60 years. The 4th Battalion Black Watch only recruited from Dundee and Loos is known as "Dundee's darkest hour". 19 out of 20 officers were killed, and 230 out of 420 soldiers were killed or severely wounded. The Battalion basically ceased to exist as such and was temporarily merged with another Battalion. Dundee has a beautiful memorial on the top of The Law (extinct volcano/site of an iron age fort), and the beacon is lit every September 25th in remembrance. There is still great pride within Dundee for the Black Watch.

    I visited the Battlefields in 2014 and since then have been part of a research team in our little town of Southam. We have created a Centenery Archive for all our fallen soldiers and would love to go back and pinpoint their memorials, many never found, several on Thiepval, so would like to go back there.
