    I had never heard of the thankful villages - those villages that sent men to war in WWI and which had every man return at the end of the war.

    They are unusual in that none of them has a war memorial.

    Two blokes are riding to each of the villages over nine days on donated Triumphs. More here BBC News - Remembering the 'Thankful Villages' of World War I
