1915: The Great War gathers pace

As the war ground into its second year P&M, motor cycle supplier to the RFC, was among firms taken under government control. The review of the year is now complete (until more factoids become available). Despite the demands of the wear effort new models still appeared, not all of them British as the Americans were happy to take a slice of the British cake. You’ll also find motor cycle sports reports from round the world, new products, a snippets, news, roadtests, a smashing bit of romantic fiction, loads of adverts…well worth a look. Meanwhile,  I’ve started expanding the review of 1916. Motor cyclists were serving as despatch riders, in the Machine Gun Service, the RFC and, of course, the Poor Bloody Infantry. And all they wanted to do was get home and ride their  bikes. Let’s count our blessings.
