We learned recently of the passing of another of our finest. James Hill, an active member and supporter of the Blackhorse Regiment Cavalry Motorcycles (BHRCM) and the association, joined his brothers at Fiddler’s Green. Our thoughts and prayers remain with the Hill family and the entire BHRCM family. Rest easy Brother.
