Gallipoli Trench Rat

Last veterans to return to the Western Front?

Recommended Posts

Gallipoli Trench Rat

What year did the last Great War veteran return to the Western Front?

 

If I remember correctly, was it during the 85th or 90th anniversary cycle a group of a half dozen or so British veterans returned to the battlefields (I believe it was the subject of a television documentary)? Trying to figure out when the last significant number (more than one or two) of veterans returned to the Western Front.

 

Thank you in advance for any and all info and leads you can provide regarding this!
