A pair of motorcyclists have set off to visit every village in Britain where its soldiers all survived World War I.
There are just 51 so-called 'Thankful Villages' that witnessed their servicemen all return safely.
Three of the villages are in Wales, which is where the nine-day tour began on Saturday at Llanfihangel y Creuddyn near Aberystwyth.
Medwyn Parry and Dougie Bancroft were joined by fellow motorcyclists for the Welsh leg of the tour.
The 'Thankful Villages Run' hopes to raise £51,000 for the Royal British Legion.
Medwyn presented a plaque to a descendant of one of the survivors when they reached Colwinston village in the Vale of Glamorgan.
