Cannot do much with just an old reg. no. which, if the bike still exists, it may now have a new reg. no.About all I could say is, HLO is a London reg. no. allocated in blocks 1946 to early 1947. Which means it was probably a 1946 or 47 model. Records are not known to have survived for that era.

There's no record of HLO 24 at Swansea DVLA.

Thanks Rob and Dave for your replies. I wasn't aware of the year so that's nice to know.

Reg no. date will not positively date year of manufacture of the bike. It could have stood unsold for a time. Or be a WD bike sold off and re registered after the war.
Have you a picture, which would be nice to see, also keen eyes here give you a clue of the bikes year / model.
