If you are a school looking for a professional military historian and battlefield guide to add to your student’s understanding of the period of history they are studying then please get in touch.

I lead school’s tours for Battle Honours, Galloways, Albatross and commissioned directly by schools.  I lead schools’ tours to the Western Front, Normandy and Berlin.  Tours are planned with the school to ensure that the needs of the curriculum are fully met whilst providing an in depth and enjoyable experience for students and teachers.

“Rob Deere joined us on our Anzac Tour of the Western Front Battlefields in April 2015. Rob literally brought the fields to life for us. His knowledge of the battles, the area, the forces, the outcomes and the background to the war was nothing short of outstanding. Coupled with his incredible knowledge, was Rob’s personality and delivery. He made time for everyone and answered every question that was thrown at him. He coped well with us making last minute changes to the schedule and assisted many of us in finding relatives that we wanted to pay a pilgrimage to. What probably impressed me the most about Rob was his relationship with the students and staff on the trip. At all times he was thoroughly professional, but he also was just great fun to be with. The kids absolutely loved him. Of our 19 students who attended the tour we asked them to write down their positives and negative of the trip. 15/19 listed Rob as a positive of the trip.” Investigators’ College

“Dear Rob, We would like to thank you for sharing your knowledge and expertise with our group. Your in-depth explanations have deepened our understanding of the Great War and have added a crucial element to our trip. We wish you all the best in the future and thank you again for all you’ve done.” Mt Clear College

“Thank you so much for the most amazing two days, despite the weather!  I will certainly be requesting your services next year!” Epsom College
