About me

Gary Weight works as a battlefield guide, historian, writer and researcher.I established Pegasus Tours in 2006 after working as a military historian on various European Tours in the 1990's.At first my emphasis was solely on Normandy but I now spend an ever increasing amount of time conducting tours across the battlefields of Belgium, Holland and Germany.I also greatly enjoy the process of researching family connections and have conducted a good number of tours that retrace the footsteps of particular units from the Normandy beaches all the way into Germany. Whether it is the American, Canadian, British, German or Polish units and actions, I have an equally deep knowledge and have met and interviewed many veterans so therefore have many first hand accounts to pass on within the tours.I use an assortment of maps, photographs and personal accounts to 'bring alive' the tours.During the winter months I also lecture at various establishments, mainly in the UK, on the events in Normandy and Holland during 1944.

Author

In December 2015 my book 'Mettle and Pasture - The History of the Second Battalion The Lincolnshire Regiment during World War II' was published by Helion.This was a six year study of a famous British County Regiment and the part played by one of it's battalions during WWII.The book has since become the definitive history of this unit.More information on this and my current writing, research and lecturing projects is available on my dedicated website [sensitive content] Here you may also find information on my genealogy research services.
