1943 BSA WM20.
Owned by Ian Foster, this 500cc single cylinder sidevalve engined motorcycle is currently wearing the markings of the Corps of Military Police, H.Q. XXX Corps (79 in white on a black background painted onto the front fender and right side of tank denotes CMP) Wild Boar (black boar on a white circle placed on a black background) applied to the right side of tank denotes XXX Corps.
Her wartime Census number is C4635221.  Post War the machine was allocated the Army Reg No: 53YD92 and she remained in Military service until 4th May 1955 when she was officially demobbed.
I got hold of her in 2015 as a box of bits and painstakingly rebuilt her to how she appears today. Since I acquired the bike, she has been to Normandy for the D-Day celebrations 4 times and has been to Holland to celebrate Operation Market Garden, escorting convoys of military vehicles in the process.
