Blue Knights Belgium IX and VII
5TH Flanders Fields Rally
WW 1 Armistice Centenary Edition
A brilliant turnout by Blue Knights England 2 for the Flanders Field Rally which was attended by 300 plus Blue Knights from around the world . Once we arrived at Flanders peace village we were greeted by our hosts Belgium IX and VII. We all settled into our rooms before we were back on our bikes for our next destination, Ypres and to the Menin Gate for the last post, which I must say was very moving. A wreath was laid by 4 members of the Blue Knights, there was also a brass band playing and a bag piper.If you’ve never been to the Menin Gate it’s a must, they play the last post every night at 8pm 365 days a year.
Back at the peace village we all got ready for the nights festivities which meant lots of eating and dancing that went on to the early hours of the morning
After the fun night which was had by all there was a ride out to Tyne Cot cemetery , some of our members had never been to the many cemeteries in Belgium and they found it very moving.
After an emotional ride out we descended back to the peace village for another night of fun.
A very big thank you to our hosts Belgium Blue Knights
A Fantastic weekend
The Blue Knights law Enforcement Motorcycle Club Invite all motorcyclists to take part in a Charity Ride on Sunday 8th July 2018 In Kent to support My Shining Star Charity. Blue Knights England II LEMC has this year chosen My Shining Star as our Charity for the next year. The Charity raises funds for the families of those Children who have been diagnosed with Cancer. On average it costs a family £600 a month to live and when you consider one or both parents may have to give up work that’s a huge amount of money. In the past year My Shining Star have given over £50.000 worth of grants to families.
We have arranged a Ride on the 8th July of around 140 miles across Kent to raise much needed funds. We welcome all motorcyclists, both serving officers and friends and families, as long as you ride a motorcycle.
