A lucky shot

I don't know who took this photograph as it was one of the veterans protesting outside the BBC office building.
Attended the Rolling Thunder Ride today taking place in Bristol in protest at the prosecution of veterans of Operation Banner (Northern Ireland deployment).
Protest rides and 'foot soldier' marches also took place in Cardiff, Birmingham, Manchester, Glasgow and London,
We had a police estimate that in Bristol there were 1,000 bikes and 400 on foot.
Video of the day is at - https://youtu.be/5JJfJ73B8Ns

At last, it caught the attention of the BBC who actually covered it after they didn't report on the 22,000 bikes riding past parliament 12 April!
Mind you, they could hardly ignore it when all the people on foot were parading outside the BBC West offices/studios and it took over 15 minutes for the motorbikes to roar, slowly, past their office building.
