Was at the Reynolds Museum in Wetaskiwin, Alberta today and they had about 20 different motorcycles used by various militaries over the years. They had the usual flathead Harley, Triumph TRW and a couple of German BMWs but one that caught my eye was a 175 James that had the Pegasus emblem of the British 6th Airborne division on the tank.

I can't believe they would have used those while jumping from airplanes but to the best of your knowlege, did the 6th Airborne ever use these in any capacity. No info on the bike to verifty that.

Reason being, my dad was a paratrooper with the 6th on D Day so my curiosity was piqued.

Thanks in advance
