DALE, YOUR GUIDE
Dale Booth Founder
After an obsessed childhood of anything war related, at the age of 16, I joined the British Army as an Infantryman, serving in The 2nd Battalion, The Royal Anglian Regiment. After 2 active tours, and postings to Germany, The United States, Northern Ireland and the United Kingdom, I went out into the big wide world, becoming ensnared in Sales management. But my heart was still in the military.
With many of my family serving in the military during WW2, including participation in the D Day landings, I never seemed to be too far away from my passion. That passion would become reinvigorated when I visited the open air museum, that is the Normandy Battlefield, with friends in 1998. This would eventually lead to our permanent move to the heart of the Normandy Battlefield in 2003.
Since 2004 I have been working as a Battlefield guide in Normandy. With an insatiable hunger for , knowledge of both the D Day landings and the many inland battles of Normandy, my depth and knowledge would eventually lead to becoming a published D Day author, with the book “Following in the footsteps of hero’s”. During this long period I have also built up local knowledge and have come to love the Normandy region.
Here is a link to my book that I am co-author of, Following In The Footsteps Of Heroes. You may find it an interesting read whether you are visiting Normandy alone or with a guide.
