One of the Last Great British Adventures…….
Throughout our straight-line journey we will be carrying a unique and symbolic object.
The Baton is a symbol of national conscience, of pride, hope, courage and suffering. Most importantly, it is a message of gratitude from those who wish to support the brave men and women of our armed forces who regularly risk their lives so that we may live with freedom of choice, peace and safety.
To the men and women of our armed forces, be assured of our pride, respect and thanks, for your professionalism, humanity and dedication to the task. Even though you may be serving in the furthest corners of the globe you will always be in our thoughts and prayers. Out of sight will never be out of mind.
For its creator Alan Rowe MBE it’s all about keeping this message alive.
