Afghan Heroes tribute Harley MT350Tue, 29 Nov 2011 00:00:00 -0800
The above Harley-Davidson MT350 has been created in honor of the UK soldiers killed over the last ten years in the Afghanistan conflict.
This particular MT350 was previously used by British forces in Afghanistan and will now act as a memorial for the charity Afghan Heroes. The tribute was created by Paul Ferguson and Martin Turner, and now features the name of each fallen serviceman or woman, accompanied by their age and the date they were killed in action.
The bike has been entitled The Corporal Lee Scott, after a soldier who was killed in an explosion on the 10th July 2009 whilst serving with the Royal Tank Regiment in Afghanistan.
His mother, Denise Harris founded Afghan Heroes in his memory, along with six other mothers who first met at their sons' repatriations. Since then the charity has helped soldiers and their families in many practical ways and has raised over £1 million for the cause.
Afghan Heroes has a close association with the motorcycling community through the Charity Riders initiative, with the aim of raising awareness on bikes runs and more. For information and to support Afghan Heroes click here.
