A first rate trip, Kat: thank you. I will remember all the little things - the students singing the songs of WW1 - readings by their peers - the service at the Menin Gate - a tour guide who could hold the students' attention.

I will always remember the effect the Great War had on everyone and I will never forget the thousands that went missing at the Somme.... but we will only remember it because of the way you taught us: so thank you Jim.

Jim: this trip has sure changed my life. I have much more respect for my mates and have noticed myself become more mature. Thank you for the best time in my life.

Thank you greatly for what you taught me. Not only do I respect the men who died for us but I also respect you for showing us there is more to find if you look deeper.

This trip has been exceptional, not because of the food, hostel or the bus journey but because of what you did, taking us to all those amazing places and telling us about the war. The trip was very special.

Jim: you made me realise how bad the war actually was. I have learned loads. It's been a lot better than I expected it to be.

This last week has been truly amazing and it wouldn't have been possible without you, Jim, as 'Field Marshall'. Thanks for the unforgettable trip.
