  3. Hi Craig Thanks for posting those pics the first one i find interesting because it is an Indian and it has the frame for the full winter screen but no canvas skirt which i have't seen before . The third picture must be from a set of pics i think most people have seen the pic of the riders linned up with thompsons out no magazines in and the high lace boots in this pic you can clearly see the 13th cav crest painted on the tank, you can just make it out in your pic. The bikes are 1940/1941 wla's, notice the white handlbar grips and shiney headlight rim. Tim
  4. Hi Johan Ihave always been lead to believe that the 2nd Recon was re-numbered 82nd Recon in the October of 1941. In the book us armored markings 1918-1941 there are a couple of pictures with Indian Big Chief and the tank markings are large crossed cavalry sabres, the pic is taken around 1940, so the bike is gloss green.

  5. Hi Johan I have quite a few pics of 41wla's and the markings are all over the place. A few of them are clearly hand painted as apposed to stencilled. Most dont seem to have any stars on the tanks at all. They seem to have unit and company markings on the front fender, some have them on the rear fender under the number plate. A good reference book is "Roll Again 2nd Armored" i copied mine from a war bonds pic with the unit we portray link belo http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie...bayphotohosting See you in Mons next week?

  8. The WW2 Impressions blue denims are superb, they have the correct buttons, the correct clinch back and the right cut. But they are out of stock other than large sizes. There are a few of us waiting for a new run, been told this summer.
