We would also like to thank all our volunteer photographers, including John Brinkley (Driftwood Images) and Barry Turner (Barry Turner Photography), whose photographs appear throughout this site.

"The Ride to the Wall event has captured the public's imagination and it has become a fantastic way in which bikers can show their great respect for those who serve in the Armed Forces. I was moved by the huge number of people involved and I know that such shows of support mean much to Service men and women and their families."
