An interesting war-time picture of a Bicycle in use.

It appears to only have a coaster brake as no rods are visible.
The Bike may well be a civilian impressed model unless others can identify.

Note the lamp on the front which have a different fitting on the rear to those commonly available to allow fitting on Bicycles.
Note also the very rare rear light of which I have only ever seen one example of.

I am still looking for some reproduction Bike Rifle Clips.

It's a badly abused 'Bicycle, G.S., Mkv', the standard military roadster of the British during WWII (though older MkIVs were still in use).
I've got a couple of those rear lights, so not particularly rare, if you'd like me to take a photo details of one?

I have one of the rear lights. If you have some I suggest youtry selling them as they are rare.

I am after one of the front lights if any military ones turn up.
