Battlefield accommodation list

Recommended Posts

Pals

Following a recent discussion on the merits of having a section on the Forum that would-be travellers might find useful for finding battlefield accommodation, I have instead proposed setting up a special section on the Long, Long Trail. This would be an accommodation database that woudl provide basic details, with a facility for those who have stayed there to add comments and opinions.

In order to expedite this, would you please post as replies to this thread the basic details of any accommodation that you know of. It could be a hotel, B&B, guest house, camp site, room above a pub, etc. Please in the first instance stick to France and Flanders. We can go further afield later on.

If someone else has already given details of an accommodation, no need to repeat it unless the details are wrong.

All I need is:

Accommodation Name

Postal address

Phone number if known

Email address if known

Website URL if known

Name of proprietor(s) if known

No comments other than that in this thread, please. Let it remain a simple data-gathering exercise.

I'll develop the first release this / next week and will let you know when it is available.
