Charity Auction:Massachusetts Battleroad Tour with a British Red Coat

I used to work with Winston at another tour company he's great, history is delivered with humor and whit.  There is a bit of pro-British bias but hello he is dressed in a red coat!  I believe he is supporting the British Soldier Fund but I will update if this proves other wise.
