On the weekend of the 14th-15th of July, myself and Sophie Penny will be taking part in a sponsored walk in full kit, held in conjuction of TFSS walk taking place this week end.

Our walk is approximatly 33 miles in length and follows the coast path from St Ives to the old Penlee lifeboat Station between Mosehole and Newlyn, this is the station the Solomon Browne was launched from when it went down with all hands in 1981.

A descritption of the course we will be following can be found at

http://www.cornishman.com/6_st_ives_to_lands_end.htm

http://www.cornishman.com/8_lands_end_to_penzance.htm

The terrain around this part of the coast varies from solid earth via loose rock to solid granite, so is not ideal walking conditions in hobnail boots and a very large portion of the walk is on a gradient ranging from very slight to near vertical. :D

The aim of this walk is to raise money for The Chindits Old Comrades Association and The Burma Star Association.

We will be doing this walk in full kit, 1 Japanese and 1 British, the only thing we won't be carrying is a rifle (due to local police decisions, not our choice)

This is going to be a tough challenge for us so if you would like to sponsor our efforts please get in touch via Pm, :D

Thanks guys

slight change of plan, the walk has had to be pushed back to July due to personnal reasons.
Other than that the walk is unchanged.

thanks mate.

The walk was actually this weekend just gone and im still recovering from it.
The conditions were bad, after all the rain we've been having th epath was incredibly boggy in places, the mud was a good 6-12 inches thick in places, an din other parts we were literally having to climb over massive rocks to keep going.
Unfortunatly we were unable to complete it as i took a bad fall after 15miles and completely fucked my shoulder to the point where i was unable to move.
We did get some footage and photos of the sections we were able to complete which will hopefully be posted on here shortly

So im getting back into training to have another go in the future, im not giving up this easily.

Tanaka,

Would just like to say well done for giving it such a good effort in adverse weather conditions. And especially as you are going to reattempt it.

Not only are you raising probably much needed funds for veterans but it also gives our generation a small appreciation of what these men went through, regardless of their allegiance.
