Re: corgi brockhouse military ww2 motorcycle
I'm no expert, but the unusual nature of the bike led me to Google.
As far as I can make out, the WW2 bikes were Welbikes. Brockhouse produced a derivative from 1947 onwards. The first Mark of these was exported to Canada, bearing the name Indian Papoose, Brockhouse having bought out the US Indian motorcycle manufacturer. This looks more like your photo. The Mark II was sold in Britain under the name Brockhouse Corgi from 1948.
It could be worthwhile checking on it's history before advertising it.
Brockhouse Corgi"Hurrah for the Works Group" just doesn't have the same ring...
"A volunteer is worth ten pressed men."
So, a TA battalion or nine Regular Guards battalions? Not a difficult choice, then (especially as we don't have nine Regular Guards battalions).
I am a number. I am not a free man.
