North Manchester Battlefield Society
North Manchester Battlefield Society

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 and last year we visited the Ardennes again.

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

The trips to The Dambusters sites (2012), Lance's India (2013), Marne/Aisne (2013), Steve's Ypres (2014), Peninsular War - Spain/Portugal (2014), Ardennes (2015) and The Somme 100th Anniversary (2016) will be added soon.

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 me at
