Paul and I left the home yesterday morning at 8.30am in torrential rain!  Fortunately we do have all the 'gear' for the Bike but non the less the spray on the motorway was 'not pleasant'! to say the least.  Only an hours ride for us to the meeting place this time.  24 Bikes turned up for the Southampton Poppy Launch at the West Quay Shopping centre.
There was a small service inside the shopping centre then one of the Marines abseiled from the ceiling followed by all the falling poppies.  The cadets then took the poppy boxes through the centre and out to the waiting bikes where they were presented to 3 of the riders and then we all left through the centre with a great deal of noise as you can imagine!! 
Pictures tell my story once again:

Wet on the outside, dry in the middle but still smiling!!!

 Abseiling from the ceiling!
