THE BRIDGE OVER THE RIVER KWAI group tour: 12-26 July, 2020
Come and touch history with us - Join Jack Bridger Chalker’s son, Adrian Chalker in Thailand as he lays his father’s ashes to rest in a dedication ceremony at The Bridge Over the River Kwai; the final ‘last post’ for an WWII allied soldier in Kanchanaburi, and perhaps the last WWII soldier to be publicly buried anywhere. Join us on a two-week journey from Singapore to Thailand to scatter the ashes of POW artist Jack Bridger Chalker and dedicate a Memorial Plaque for all POWs at the Jack Chalker Gallery / 'Weary' Dunlop Memorial in Kanchanaburi. Hosted by first class guides and accompanied by the son of Jack Bridger Chalker, Adrian Bridger Chalker (professional tour operator and organizer of this expedition), the itinerary is a mix of WWII activities and tourist visits designed to accommodate the interests of the entire family, not just the history fanatics! We explore Singapore,Bangkok, visit Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai for the jungle experience, then end in Kanchanaburi,a place of startling beauty, for the dedication ceremony.
