It sports a trials style exhaust pipe as I want to run it on the road the original Scrambler pipe is far too loud. Along the way I also picked up a Dot Mancunian; this was a rare foray into the road market by Dots. The Demon was built with the then new square tubing frame and an all welded construction. Prior to , Dot used a more traditional cast lug and brazed tubing fabrication. The square frame is significantly lighter than its predecessor. I have run another Demon for about 5 years, using it to green lane and plod along the small back roads of Essex.

The divisional sign of 12 Div was a white water buffalo on a black background with a white boomerang underneath and identified vehicles to the division.
A unit sign was also displayed on the vehicle and identified the unit the vehicle belonged to. The unit signs would have a coloured background that designated the type of unit, artillery, infantry, cavalry etc. American units serving as part of NT force were also supposed to display the unit sign, although the author has yet to find photographic evidence of this. This Dodge convertible demonstrates the correct camouflage pattern and bears the unit sign in the correct location.
The indicates that this vehicle belongs to the public works unit of 12 Div, NT Force.

A new review has been created: The Second World War meant a disaster and stop of production for many motorcycle companies in Great Britain. For a handful of “selected few” WWII presented an opportunity to continue development and production of their motorcycle models, especially for the British Army. Prior to Britain engaging in the war, the War Office had very clear picture of how many and what model motorcycles will be needed.
Apart from the proven suppliers like Norton, trials and tests were conducted with other manufacturers of special military applications. Prior to the war, several limited series motorcycle models were delivered to the British Army. After the evacuation of Dunkirk, where a large number of British Army equipment remained at the beaches, it was necessary to compensate for these losses. The War Office therefore purchased and confiscated many civilian motorcycles, placed orders to the USA and reached out to the previously unapproved local manufacturers.
As the war progressed, the Army was able to standardize the production of individual components and accessories only to a certain extent. Apart from various light models for airborne units and Special Forces, the focus was shifted towards cc and cc models. In the domestic production was able to fulfill the needs and the non-standard types were reassigned to Homeguard units and civilian sector.
The primary suppliers for the British Army and subsequently to the states of Commonwealth were the following companies with their motorcycles:
Initially viewed as a near failure by the War Office in , the M20 evolved into one of the longest serving motorcycles in the history of British military motorcycling, as well as becoming the most numerous type produced for World War II with , in active service, so many are still in use around the world today. Designed by Val Page the BSA M20 started development in as a heavy framed sidecar model with a simple cc single cylinder side valve engine.
It had low compression and plenty of low end torque through a standard BSA gearbox. Early K-M20 models from were made from standard civilian parts with the addition of military fittings, such as a large 8 in Lucas DUl42 headlight fitted with a black out mask , a timing-gear cover with a screw-in plug for access to the magneto drive-pinion nut and special filler caps the petrol and oil tanks. These early military M20 models were also fitted with a long spiked prop stand on the rear nearside pivoted from a lug brazed on to the rear frame tube.

There was certainly an established trade in the city by the early 16th century, for in , for instance, John Leiand, a churchman, travelling through the Midlands, wrote: This street, as I remember, is called Dirty Deritend. In it dwells smiths and cutlers and there is a brooke that divides this street from Bermingham There be many smiths in the towne, that use to make knives and all manner of cutting tools, and many lorimers that make bittes, and a great many naylours, so that a great part of the towne is maintained by smiths, who have their iron and sea-coal out of Staffordshire.
It was not only in arms that England lagged. Virtually all gunpowder was imported from Antwerp until the lesson of the Armada in when Howard of Effingham and Drake were prevented from destroying Philip’s fleet off Plymouth before it sailed up the Channel by a desperate shortage of powder which forced them to break off action after their preliminary victory.
