1918 Sunbeam Military Dispatch Rider's Motorcycle

Found in France in a derelict state and brought back to the UK. During restoration the original brass plate bearing French dispatch rider's regiment and number and village of origin was exposed; contact has since been made with the mayor of the village. Only a handful of Sunbeam military motorcycles remain in existence.
