Remembrance Ride

Rob Eade who served in the Defence Force for 21 years (1965-1986) is undertaking a venture to ride his motorised trike, towing a small trailer, around Australia and place a small hand held Australian flag with the detail of veterans who paid the supreme sacrifice from the Vietnam war through to the current war/conflicts in their birth/enlistment town memorial.

He estimates a possible three year journey to accomplish this endeavour that he started mid-2016.

Assistance would be welcomed, from RSL and Veteran groups in the towns he will be visiting, in the area of accommodation that is pet-friendly for he and his assistance dog, and the odd hot shower or home cooked meal would be greatly appreciated. This is a self-funded enterprise.
