Cyclist Camp - Auchonvillers, Somme, France 2010.

'Tommy Atkins' in full kit, sweating, smiling and ready for the fight on the road back to Thiepval.

An Officer enters Beaumont Hamel Memorial Park.


Camp life, kit on display.

All loaded up, rifle attached and ready for action.

 A very happy looking webmaster just before trying to ride a military cycle for the first time. 

Not easy as the peddles also act as a brake.


Cycles lined up ready for inspection. Camping under the trees, out of the heat of the Somme heat.
Thanks to the 'old sweats' who set up camp here to remember the men that served and died on the Somme and also to support their charity.
