Left hand chairs and not anything that I recognise as pre-war French.
I'm 99% sure that those bikes are pre-war Velocette MAC's. Did some of the French colonies (Africa for instance) drive on the left?
The French government did order 500 more in 1940. The order was canceled when Paris fell and my own MDD is one of the canceled bikes which were all reallocated to British and Russian units. Ron

Interesting pictures, the Machine guns are French Chatellerault mle 1924, the forage caps look British and the Rifles look like British P14s or possibly US P17s?, I would guess British supplied Free French Forces probably in Africa?
