The 60th commemorative service honouring my Uncle Gordon (Judges) and his 6 fellow airmen is the inspiration for this family trip. Loire Valley wineries and chateau hopping; the allied invasion of Normandy; Vimy Ridge and the Battle of Somme; Flanders Fields Ypres; historic Bruges; The Aredennes; the memorial service in Jalhay,Belgium with a glorious finale in Paris. Dedicated to our mother Marilyn June Judges (Rea) who always wished to visit her big brothers final resting place.
