I was interested to read the free supplement in the March issue entitled British Motorcycles and the Military
Military Matchless

George Charlton on a Matchless G3, in the Far East

I have enclosed a photographs of my late father, George Charlton, aboard a Matchless, somewhere in the Far East, which may be of interest to your readers. The photographs would probably have been taken in either Malaysia or Singapore, before he was captured and imprisoned by the Japanese.

Many thanks for your excellent publication.
