Bob Parker (AMRR Co-Founder)
Hello, my name is Bob Parker [tambor] and I am a member of the RBLR, living in Kent.
I served in the Royal Engineers for 12 yrs [1961 - 1973]. This is my second attempt at being a ‘Legion’ member. I ride a Suzuki Intruder ‘Velusia’ and have taken part in several military type shows with members of the RBL in Kent.
This ‘RIDE’ was originally my brother’s [Norman] idea. He passes the cemetery quite often and thought it would be a nice idea to try to see if we could organise something to commemorate the fallen USA personell buried here. This website and attached information is a direct result of this idea.
As for me, I am well into my sixties, still very keen on riding and looking to do what I can to promote both the Legion and the Riders.
I have travelled extensively, lived in Germany [as a civilian] and been married twice. My current wife is my rock, she encourages me to ‘DO’ things, even if they are stupid.
I hope that anyone who reads and rides will participate in this event. We are getting lots of interest from media, both here and in the states and hopefully this will raise both money and awareness of the POPPY appeal as a charity that exists all year round, not just the week before Remembrance day.
Please sign up for this, the cause is good and the reward could be more than you imagined.
