The WWII British Commando Raids on Sark

This all-day walk on the beautiful island of Sark, focuses on the two infamous raids carried out by both British and French commandos during the German Occupation. These two raids had severe repercussions for both the Channel Islanders and the whole of the Allied commando forces across Europe, with one raid resulting in Adolf Hitler issuing his infamous 'Commando Order' of October 1942, which resulted in the many deaths of Allied soldiers.

Thanks to permission given to access private properties, you can retrace the footsteps of these brave soldiers and walk the exact route that they undertook over 75 years ago, and you will also visit the cemetery, where one of the Allied commandos who took part in one of the raids is laid to rest, and see other graves of those connected to the Occupation. Before you catch the boat back, you’ll examine the remaining German defences at Creux Harbour.

There will be a breakfast and lunch stop (not included in the price).

The walk will be £15 per person – food and ferry not included. Departing on the 8.00am boat and returning on the 4.00pm boat. Meet outside the Sark Shipping Office at 7.40am
