Allied Memorial Rememberance Ride - June 30th 2012

It had been in the diary for about three months, but this year there were only two of us, my brother Neill, and me. 

It was the same as the last ever Wootton Bassett Run back in March.

Maybe the effects of the recession have bitten harder than I had thought.

We were supposed to meet at Nell's Cafe on the A2, but in the end as there were two of us we met at the Esso down the road to fill up for the 120 mile ride up to Cambridge.

The ride was also taking place in the US and Canada.

On our run we had people from across the commonwealth.
Some of those that gave their lives for our freedom are buried here. The walls between the memorial and the flag pole contain the names of over 5000 airmen and women that were lost and never recovered.

One of those is bandleader Glenn Miller.

A great cause for a ride.

Interesting that it was also being held over here. I have not heard anything of it, but then our news is so censored.
