"Motorcycle reconnaissance troops" by Roland Davies, Date unknown

Catalogue ref: INF 3/1586Links to the Catalogue


In a Boys' Own style image, determined-looking motorcycle reconnaissance troops head towards the viewer, with the first rider's Thompson sub machine-gun in action.

This piece is very much in Roland Davies' style. It is not known what the image was used for.
