British Forces Motorcycles: 1925-45
Perhaps the most far reaching of the many changes wrought on the military by World War I was the mechanization of the armed services. After many centuries of use by the Army for patrols and communications, the trusty horse was finally supplanted by the new-fangled motorcycle. This mechanization process gathered pace during the interwar years and in particular for the military motorcycle between 1925 and 1939. By the outbreak of World War II, the motorcycle had become an important part of the military inventory and deemed "suitable for WD requirements". This fully illustrated book looks at all military motorcycles of British origin know to have been tested mainly by MWEE/MEE.
