Why Flan­ders was a tour to re­mem­ber

I DON’T RE­ALLY have a bucket list, but I wanted to visit one of the First World War bat­tle­fields while the on­go­ing cen­te­nary com­mem­o­ra­tions are be­ing ob­served. I couldn’t make it to the Somme last year, so pulled out all the stops to go over to Bel­gium for the 100th an­niver­sary of the Bat­tle of Pass­chen­daele. It was a moving ex­pe­ri­ence which ex­ceeded my ex­pec­ta­tions on ev­ery level, and I can un­re­servedly rec­om­mend this fas­ci­nat­ing and very ac­ces­si­ble area for a tour­ing holiday – turn to page 20.

Also in this is­sue, we of­fer our ver­dict on the Bailey Pe­ga­sus GT70 spe­cial edi­tion, and round up our high­lights from last month’s NEC show in Birm­ing­ham. Plus, Sammy Fair­cloth has ev­ery­thing you need to know about car­a­van ser­vic­ing, from page 89.

En­joy the is­sue.
