In Ypres Blind Veterans UK members walk in the footsteps of the First World War men | Accessible Tourism | Scoop.it
In Ypres Blind Veterans UK members walk in the footsteps of the First World War men (RT @BlindVeterans: "A War Poem" by blind veteran William Robinson, who lost his sight in Ypres in 1916 http://t.co/eNzp1d9QZr...
Brian Seaman's insight:

There is going to be a massive interest in all things marking the 100th anniversary of the beginning of WWI in 2014, especially along the front line in Europe and at war cemetaries. All of these areas are likely to need accommodation for disabled and older visitors, travelling with their families to remember those lost in the terrible conflict.
