The North Manchester Battlefield Society
The North Manchester Battlefield Society

Please note that this is a new site, updating the old one and is still under development.  Please bear with us and keep coming back to see updates.

The North Manchester Battlefield Society was formed in late 2000 by a group of Civil Servants based in Manchester. The first trip was to the Somme and the Normandy Beaches in February 2001. The NMBS have since toured Battlefields of Europe each year since; in June 2013 we visited the battlefields of the Ainse, Marne and Champagne and 2014 will see a first as I travel the WWI battlefields and Gerry, Kevin and Lance head to Portugal and Spain and explore the Peninsular Wars.

Many pages from Market Garden onwards will be multiple pages and can be viewed when you click the main title on the left.

We hope you enjoy the site and would be grateful of any feedback and advising us of any mistakes or errors. We appreciate your feedback. If you have any issues, comments or ideas you wish to share with us in regards battlefield touring, memorials or remembering the fallen, you can do this by either signing the guestbook using the guestbook button below or email us on or direct to me (Steve Hoar) at
