Both of those bikes could do with some air in the rear tyres! I could do with one of those short pattern DR coats. There must be another two bikes out of shot as there are four DRs present...Ian

This photo was taken In Northamptonshire and the pub (with the Phipp's Brewery sign)is still there. I believe it was part of 'Operation Bumper'

bicester sounds good as the army was and still is around that area
Yes it's the Six Bells in Bicester... You can street view it in Google maps. Hope this link works...
If not then paste this map reference into the Google maps search bar. 51.896540, -1.154977
The great thing about Google maps (for those who dont know) is that you can zoom in on a place and also click & drag the little orange man on the zoom slider and drop on any road that then highlights blue. It's a question then of navigating around and seeing the sights! Brilliant stuff, just dont go peeping through windows.
It's definately Bicester (Church Street), it's during Exercise Bumper see HMVF
this is 1x of a series of photos shown in Life magazine, during the period.
Nice to see a pic of how bikes were loaded "pre pannier". I wonder if there was an official limit on how much you could cramm on!
