Ride For Remembrance November 2015

Ride For Remembrance November 2015

A Sunday morning on 8th Novem
ber meeting in Fulham at the Eel Brook Common.Scooter heaven all decorated in poppies. Loved it.  I have a top class respect for anyone who stands for what Mod Culture represents. We all gathered together for the 11am silence outside listening to the chime of Big Ben. The pub was decorated in poppies and some lovely badges made for the ride. Great to see some familiar faces. My crew from Mad Mods & Englishmen ready to go. Smiler, my No1 partner in crime on the ride outs! Norman Jay MBE Good Times DJ. I met Gary Shail who began work in TV and film in 1977 and is best known for his roles as Spider in the 1979 cult classic film Quadrophenia. His memoir “I Think I’m On The Guest List” has just been published so check it out. Wolfy Follow arrived later on for the Remembrance auction at the Eel Brook. As if time had not passed from the Summer ride out to Southend, I jumped on the back of Smiler’s Vespa and as one large group we all rode through the streets of London up to Hyde Park to the memorial. Here the poppy laden wreaths were laid in remembrance. My friends with Mad Mods & Englishmen writing a lovely message on theirs, with Smiler doing the honours at placing it on the memorial. You guys totally rock! We then rode up through Oxford Street and up to Camden Lock before we said our goodbyes. 

With everything that is going on in the world today, I would just like to say how much of a pleasure it is to have these moments when we are united together through peace, love and rock’n’roll.  Someone asked me why I photograph the Mods. I was surprised to be asked that question, and I thought about it and replied… “because they stand for art, fashion, unity, peace, love and rock’n’roll. As do I.” Always be who you are.

Enjoy the photos.
