BROTHERS IN ARMS
These two pictures show my late father-inlaw Syd Chapple and his brother Reg Chapple. Syd is on the pillion of his mate’s BSA Empire Star – the picture was taken just before World War II, around 1938-ish. When war broke out, Syd was sent to Egypt, where he served in the 8th Army. The photo of Reg on the Harley was taken a couple of years later, when he was in the services overseas. Both of them came home safely after the war, but sadly both have now passed on.
