Mercian

Wore out three sets of tires already!
Hi Fred,

The intention was to jump with the bike, as shown in the training manual photos, but there's no evidence this happened in action, far too dangerous.

Mostly, the bikes were shipped in on landing craft and by glider.

They were used by many units, and by British, Canadian and Indian forces.

Large numbers ended up in the US after the war as surplus, and were sold through catalogues.

Best Regards,

Adrian

Finally riding a big boys bike
Not really my "style" but i think i would have gravitated to that one too.
Unique looking find.
