Is it just me, or is there a striking resemblance here?

Aircraftsman Shaw?

A genuine hero. Did you know he rescued someone who was drowning in a seaplane mishap?

And a Brough Superior! Each one tested to 100 of your Genuine English Miles per Hour, on roads not fit for 40 of those foreign short mile things. Bit like ours today really. (If they didn't make the ton, they were not 'Superior' just Broughs.

I don't think the other one would help anyone.

I don't think those two motorbikes look very similar, to be brutally honest.

Tony/Blue: Well I agree totally with the comparison of the bikes, a Brough Superior being a true piece of work and T.E. Lawrence's favourite (and ultimate) ride. The Harley Road King was made for very different roads. I love it for very different reasons to my Beemer, but I'd swap either for a Brough Superior

I knew he joined the RAF and fell in love with the Air Sea Rescue boats but had no idea re the rescue.
I still think him and Cammo share a resemblance.
