The SAHR Peninsular War Tour
Wednesday 9th - Wednesday 16th May 2018
21 members and their partners, drawn from UK, USA, Australia and New Zealand joined SAHR Chairman Ashley Truluck for this battlefield tour following in the footsteps of the Light Division in the Peninsular War. With a shared background as SAHR members and military history enthusiasts, everyone got along splendidly. In addition to touring many of the key battlefields, the group visited some wonderful historic towns, sampled regional food and wines and generally soaked up the local culture.
