A tragedy indeed.
I hope the British can understand the description about a young Belgian soldier, a Christian, who had a fatal motorcycle accident in Salisbury shortly after the war. We are asked to pray for him.
A very nice motorcycle by the way, this Ariel WNG. And very good, too. With extra springs on the front fork, alloy chaincase, dry clutch, plunger oil pump (never a crankcase full off oil), correct magdyno and so on.
I bought one in parts in the late seventies for 150 gulden. And sold it again for the same price (!) Still regret it till this day.
They are my favourites, but hard to find nowadays (and expensive).
