    Hello all,
    I can remember when the AA mechanics used to drive these motorcycles, they used to salute you if you had one of their badges on the front of your vehicle. They also had the AA emergency telephone boxes placed at strategic points along the highways. This was of course forty odd years before the mobile phone.
    I still have my old style badge and a modern square one too.

    Regards, James.

    The Miniature Sheet features two brothers, Joey Dunlop #3 and Robert Dunlop #4.
    Sadly....Joey was killed during a race in Estonia in 2000 and Robert was killed during a race in Ireland in 2008. image.jpeg

    Hi, I like your stamps, and I'm sad that from all over 800 stamps that I have, I don't have any with a motorcycle. I could not believe when I saw this, I do have with bicycles a lot but no motorcycles.

    From my WWl collection. Cpl Robert Norman, a motorcycle despatch rider in WWl, issued Jersey 2018.
    Prior to adopting these motorcycles by the Royal Engineers, riders on horseback had this dangerous communications job, through treacherous weather, roads clogged with heavy traffic and under fire.

    It´s a shame that Scott lists them at the "back of the book".
