My Father in-law may have had a hand in building this machine for the war effort - he started at Plumsted in 1929 aged 14 when it was know as ’Colliers’ and help with the AJS amalgamation into South London in 1931,leaving what was by then AMC in 1948 after the second world war.

I know why he’s grinning so much, it’s because he’s being paid to enjoy himself on a bike supplied by someone else, with petrol too! And why not? I know I did......and DWS did too.....Great pic, any more?
