Thanks Rossmann,

That explains the skillful use of stamping techniques.

Her are two 'bikes in German use, cropped from the same photo. I think they are British, at least one an Ariel, but what model. All of the chrome points towards commandeered civilian machines.
Thanks for looking,
Kerry.

Hi Kerry

The Areial is a "Red Hunter" but I am not sure which model. As for the other one I am clueless.

Thank you Clive, that has cleared one up. They both look as if they have just been taken into military use. I am sure the genuine owners would have been deeply upset, nice looking 'bikes!

Kerry - if the Ariel pic was actually SMALLER the resolution MIGHT allow you to make out what's written on the timing cover! 8O IIRC It'll say VH 350 or VH 500...

As for the other...look closely at the "relections" in the chrome panel of the tank...they're not, you can clearly see the "A.J.S" once you know to look for it! :D

Three more photos of captured motorcycles
1. French Terrot (RDA ?)
2. Danish Nimbus (model ?)
3. Polish CWS M111 (Sokol 1000 M111) with Polish pre-war registered WOI-904

I do not suppose that this made it to front-line use, but a quirky three seater Bohmerland in German custody.
