Motorcade. Taken in November 1977 at the Remembrance Day parade in Hertford, England. At the war memorial in the centre of the town the usual gathering of veterans, civic dignitaries and scouts and guides was joined by a large group of motorbikes of all types and sizes. Bikers were getting a bad press at the time, and it was moving to see this group redressing the balance as they came to pay their respects. I took this one shot as they slowly followed the foot parade at the end of the ceremony. Almost straight into the sun, and helped by a trace of mist in the air.
