A colleague on a motorcycle.
The back of the photograph has the name
(possibly) J F Perry. Any information then please get in
The motor cycle I have identified as a P & M
Military Model 3.5HP. The distinctive front forks and
mud-guard contour, the cylinder pointing up and forward and
the characteristic crank in the lower rear axle support make
this fairly certain. Also my reference, Ansell, David (1985)
'Military Motor Cycles', states that, "....the P & M
factory received a contract to supply the Royal Flying Corps
during the First World War with their 3.5HP model...".
