World War I Centenary Book & Battle of the Somme Tour

If you follow me on Instagram then you will already know that the other half was away in France last week on a Battle of the Somme bike tour for the 100th year anniversary.

It really was a once in a lifetime experience for him and the week was jam packed with visit to various memorial sites, ceremonies and graveyards. As I didn’t go on the trip myself I don’t feel I could do it justice by writing about it so instead I thought I would share some of his photos with you.

World War I Centenary Book

I wanted to get Phil a keepsake to remind him of his trip away so I got him a personalised World War I Centenary book.

“Relive the events of World War I with this wonderful centenary edition through newspaper articles and also through the medium of photography. Complete with 32 beautiful, rarely seen, black and white photographs, your book is bound with an elegant black leather cover”

I am so happy with the book, it really is a lovely thing for him to have. The quality is fantastic.

The book contains scans of newspaper articles and photos that were published at the time of the war. It’s a 38 x 31cm individually bound hardback book including 32 black and white photographs and is presented in a stylish black leather cover.

You also have the option to personalise your book with a personalised certificate which includes the recipient’s name and a personal message.

The book isn’t cheap, it costs £69.99 but it really is worth every penny. I genuinely believe it is the best gift I have got for the other half so far.
