In 1946 my unit was stationed at Opicina in the extreme North of Italy. It was a fairly relaxed period for most of us, despite the fact that we were keeping the peace in the Venezia Giulia area between the Jugoslavs and the Italians. Through the good offices of one of the Troop Don-Rs (Despatch Riders) I had a crash course in riding a motorbyke and for one glorious day roared around the barracks delivering mail. My question is simply can anyone identify the motorbyke? A knowledgable ex-biker friend of mine suggests it might have been a Matchless..... any other thoughts please ?
