I can confirm that the ride in will take place on the 16th April, albeit now as a memorial ride to honour the memory of Gordon Prime. I know that Gordon’s family are very keen that this still takes place. At the time of writing, camping will be available at Carew and this will be the start and finish point of the ride. It is planned to have a stop at the Heritage Centre in Pembroke Dock with a bugler to sound the Last Post. As I understand it, there will be regional/possibly national TV covering the ride as well as regional press. I am told by Steve Allen that he is hoping to get a motorcycle celebrity/celebrities to attend and hopefully, there will also be a contingent of the military attending. Steve has also arranged for a burger van to be on site. Justin Legg says that there will also be representation from the MVT.
I would be very grateful if you could contact me by return and acknowledge your attendance on the 16th of April so that I can give fixed numbers of riders with military bikes to the organisers before I leave for Portugal on the 27th of this month for five weeks. Let’s make this day as big as possible because getting a memorial for Despatch Riders erected at the NMA was very dear to Gordon’s heart and the 16th of April was a date that he never forgot. I look forward to your replies.
