Enroute to Normandy

British Commandos with BSA Paratroopers Bicycles Preparing for D-Day, June 1944

'At the start of the 1st Dutch Origamitour around Wolfheze my Birdy Jubilee met the BSA Paratrooper folding bike from 1944.

This folder was left in the area after the battle of Arnhem in september 1944. The Paratrooper had in fact more flight experience than the Birdy could think of.'
