The Sixteen aitch

Someone has kindly informed me that the motorcycle my grandfather, George, is seen on is actually a Norton 16H. The ubiquitous mode a rapid transit during the Second World War. Over 100,000 were manufactured between 1932 when the War Department approved the design of this 490cc Single until 1945 by which time models in olive, khaki and RAF blue were scattered around the globe. Some solo, some with a combination chair and some with sidecar ‘box’.
