About this memory

George Rosie.

George Rosie was a despatch rider with the army, rising to the rank of regimental sergeant major. In wartime he saw service with the Chindits, a special operations unit formed during the Burma Campaign. Stationed in Berlin after the end of the war, he left the services after witnessing the ill treatment of civilians by the occupying allied forces.

The motorcycle is possibly an Indian Scout 600cc.
