Norton 16H in Movies
Convoy escort rider (or riders - maybe 2 bikes?? Let's hope these are all the same ...). Looks like Norton written on tank above?? RMG 875 = March 39 Middlesex series issued to War Department - same series appears on some of the trucks..
Strange Report EP: 1.11
1946 reg. side valve Norton a bit of a left field choice of transport for one of the groovy main characters.

The bike at the front. The Bedford truck is already listed. Norton 16H..over 100,000 made for WW2 service
With that many 16Hs built it's little wonder Messrs Pride and Shark in Stockwell were still selling such ex-WD stock around 1959/60 for £39-10-0 or so. Never saw many WD Nortons on the road but may well have mistaken them for M20s, of which 126,000-odd were made.
For the bike - mentioned in commentary as being sold through an ad in the paper. DJB 343 = late 1946.
