The tour will provide a fascinating insight into Bradford’s contribution to the conflict.

The ‘Bus to Bradford’ group was set up in 2012 to publicise Bradford’s part in the Great War through links with Bradford City football club, from which many players and supporters alike served and lost their lives. They unveiled a memorial in Bus-les-Artois, on 30th June 2016 – exactly 100 years after the Bradford Pals marched out of ‘Bus’ for the final time before their destruction at Serre on the opening day of the Battle of the Somme. The group continues to encourage people to discover more about Bradford’s part in the Great War by articles, publicising events and assisting members to trace family soldiers who fought and fell in this conflict.
