    Default Graeme who?

    Can anyone help locate where this photo was taken?



    Canadian RCAF man left NY about June 1942.
    Bike looks like a 1930's Model 9 Sunbeam.
    Was apparently killed during ww2.

    Just an observation, the national stripe on his shoulder looks to be a longer word than CANADA, could it be Newfoundland ?

    Could this be at RAF East Wretham?

    I sent your photo to a mate who is a motorcycle expert and you are right it is a Sunbeam from the late 1930ís.

    Cheers,

    John.
