Faith under Fire

Tour Introduction

This tour focuses on the non-combatants who served in the Great War with courage and distinction, and looks at the moral and ethical aspects of war that are often neglected.

How did these non-combatants grapple with matters of faith and conscience amidst the horrors of war?

On this Ypres-based tour we focus in depth on the hardships, dilemmas and daily challenges faced by the Padres who were deployed in support of troops on the Western Front, and link them and their role with recent conflicts, including Iraq and Afghanistan.
