Tours for the Armed Forces

Anglia has twenty five years of experience of providing the full range of quality Battlefield Studies and Staff Rides for the Armed Forces.

We provide battlefield studies that range from a Realities of War package for the Initial Training Group, through battlefield studies for regular and reserve units, to high level staff rides for major UK and NATO headquarters.  Every client is different and so are their requirements. Our commitment is to facilitate training that not only meets unit or headquarters’ training aims but is conducted in a manner appropriate to the group. To achieve this the package must be workable on the ground, financially viable and above all, a positive and enjoyable learning experience for the participants.

Consequently, the first step for our mainly ex-Service staff is to discuss with the project officer the training outcomes that the commander wishes from the study. From there we work with project officers to produce workable itineraries, administrative plans, materials required by, for instance, the Army’s AGAI 23 and the supporting training aids.

On the ground during the study or staff ride our guides deliver the historical content and take on the administrative burden, maximising the numbers able to focus on training delivery and outcomes.

Staff Rides

Staff Rides are designed specifically for formation, Tri-Service Headquarters, career courses and development for these courses.

Battlefield Studies

Battlefield Studies are a core function of professional military education.  They focus not only on historical aspects but also on decision making, inter-operability, maintenance of the moral component and collective training. 

Realities of War

Our Realities of War tours are best suited for service personnel in the early part of their careers, where they deliver an extra dimension to training and drive home the relevance of the Core Values to battle and service life as a whole, helping to lay the foundations of military character.
