Hawk on a Walk

A friend of mine who also served in the 14th/20th King’s Hussars spent the past 5 days walking from Preston in Lancashire (UK) to Winchester in Hampshire (UK) a distance of 240 miles.

20 miles to go point and still going strong.

All this effort was to raise money for the Welfare Funds of the King’s Royal Hussars who are currently based in Tidworth Hampshire. I only joined him on his final day, and I was of course sitting comfortably in the mini the whole time cheering him on with my iPhone doing live broadcasts through Facebook or camera taking some pictures to share on pages like this and on Facebook.

I want to do this in the hope that I can get some of my ‘followers’ on this page to donate and congratulate Bryan on his achievement of the past week.

HRH Prince Michael of Kent talking to Bryan Lythgoe

Nearing his 60th Birthday he managed to walk at between 4 and 5 mph the whole way, having to be slowed down at times by others who were looking after him. The walk took him through the madness of Birmingham, something I doubt he will forget too quickly, “Never again” were his words to me.
