'Motorcycle dispatch riders in 1914' by Nick Shelly
06 Apr
"Motorcycle dispatch riders in 1914' In this talk Nick describes the motorcyclists' contribution to the 1914 campaign, from their own words and illustrated with their previously unpublished photographs. Some accounts were contemporaneous, others written soon after the war. The talk is illustrated with many unpublished images from various sources.  For this project Nick and his brother researched twelve motorcyclists who served as dispatch riders in 5th Signals RE in 1914; their work was published by Helion as Two Wheels to War in 2017. Outside research, Nick's main interest is Secretary of the Marston Sunbeam Club & Register, for enthusiasts of pre-war Sunbeam motorcycles.
