*COVID-19 - UPDATE FOR OUR TRAVELLERS*
*The Battlefield 2020 Tour Season has been Postponed, including Liberation 75 Events, to 2021 *
On March 18th, we were advised by the Canadian Embassy that planned ceremonies & activities for the 75th Anniversary of the Liberation of Europe would not continue as planned due to the Covid-19 pandemic lockdowns taking place around the world. The Government of Canada organizing committees in The Netherlands are working with over 30 Canadian organizations, including ourselves, that have planned to travel to Europe for the May 2020 commemorations.
On March 27th, the Liberation organizations overseas announced that liberation events have been postponed until 2021, please see below:
The Liberation 75 organizations have agreed to postpone their ceremonies and events for the same dates in May 2021. Dates are confirmed, and more information is to come. We continue to work on building the revised Liberation 75 2021 program in the meantime. We are cautious in our planning - there are still many unknowns, but we are ecstatic with the support and excited to provide tour programs that go above and beyond - something we can all look forward to while we take this time to hunker down.
For now, the DH Tour office, Connection Custom Travel, The Battlefield Tours, and our affiliate agency offices remain closed indefinitely. Some of us continue to work from home, and yes, Karen is still at the phones, processing administration. If you’re still reaching out, expect it to take longer than normal for us to get back to you - we appreciate your patience!
We will continue to keep you posted on a weekly basis, every Friday, at the end of the day.

If you have any questions please let us know - and in the meantime, stay safe!
I look forward to keeping in touch!

A New Logo for 75+1
A big thank you to the Friends of Apeldoorn, especially Martin van de Poel, who created this new logo for us to share with the world!
This logo represents many things, but most notably the commitment from the municipalities of Leeuwarden, Groningen, Veenendaal and Veendam, Wageningen, Holten, Nijmegen and Apeldoorn, from volunteer organisations such as Veluwe Remembers, Foundation Liberation 45, Welcome Again Veterans, Liberation Route Europe, Stichting Wageningen 45, V-fonds, Palace Het Loo, Operation Faust, as well as from Veteran Affairs Canada, and the Canadian Armed Forces, who have all come together to support the postponement of these events to 2021. All organizations involved in the postponement will be standing united together under this new and stirring logo.
