The One-Day Battlefield Guide Insight Course

Why not stay on the battlefield after you leave the services?


The UK travel industry has well established and competitive Battlefield Tour, military history and Genealogy markets that continue to expand. Travel Operators marketing battlefield tours constantly look to recruit high quality ‘Battlefield Guides’ with a suitable knowledge and understanding of military history. Battlefield Guides lead groups from all over the world on tours of the battlefields of Western Europe, the Mediterranean and even further afield.

Many Service Leavers already have the ideal mix of delivery skills, personality, life-experience and knowledge to find employment as a professional Battlefield Guide. This bespoke course is designed to signpost the route for service leavers to do just that, establish a potential secondary income as a working Battlefield Guide.       


This one-day programme will offer unique insight into the profession of the battlefield guide and deliver an understanding of the UK’s multi-faceted battlefield tour industry. Opportunities exist for service leavers to find employment as a Battlefield Guide; you just need to know where to look.

  • The Where? -The Tour destinations and types of tour you may be asked to deliver.
