In the attached interview, Major Tait and Marshall Bowman talk about the Battalion and its link to Raith Rovers FC. It was following this interview that we got chatting about the Centenary pilgrimage and Marshall and I raised the idea of a sponsored cycle. Marshall and I had kicked the idea about during a discussion as Rovers fans who love cycling but the immediate level of interest shown by Major Tait raised the bar. For me this was the motivation needed and I decided to take responsibility and own the idea.
As a supporter its a chance to represent Raith Rovers in a positive manner and as a person its a chance to give something back through; fundraising which will hopefully assist the maintenance of the Cairn and show respect to the Regiments legacy . The final motivation is simply to tell the story to anyone who comes my way of how players and supporters gathered together to fight for their country.
