    Hello there,
    I have this doubt and I don't know where to ask, sorry if this not the right forum.
    I would like to know what are these bagdes, that where painted in some british wartime motorcycles.
    I own one myself and I was always curious about it, but I'm from South America, so I know nothing about it.

    Here are some pics for reference:

    green/red square denotes RASC , Royal Army Service Corps.
    White over Blue is Royal Signals.
    Red/blue is Royal Artillery , I think.

    One of the motorcycles Steve McQueen used in "The Great Escape" is here in St. Louis, at the National Museum of Transport. Other "interesting" items as well.
