      • I’ve got a good story in the Journal about that motorcycle. The 403 Squadron Erks pieced it together from various damaged bikes. They used it for transportation on some hunting missions looking to trade local farmers cigarettes for green apples and fresh eggs to supplement their dehydrated food rations. The also used it when they went looking for German guns and other war prizes..
        I’ll write it up when I get a chance.
