India 1940.

Re: India 1940.

India Office Nortons with the characteristic front mudguard grab-handle. It's difficult to see if they have the '37 or '38 pattern engines - the one on the right looks to have a smoother mag chain cover indicating the later version which India received.

Re: India 1940.

It would have been interesting to hear what the Indian mechanics/minders in the background were saying about the sahibs on the Nortons! One of them seems quite amused so their comments may not have been complimentary!

Re: India 1940.

Nice, and mirrors in use, I wonder if that was an Indian bylaw or just an aid for the instructors?
