Mystery solved... possibly
By: Web Editor
At that time the police were responsible for road safety and ‘get fit for the road’ appears to be a road safety event. It looks about to be started by the Norwich Lord Mayor who I believe was Mr Alfred Nicholls, although I am not certain.
The road safety department was headed by Sgt Stanley Furlonger and it is probably him behind the centre rider. His cap and arm chevrons can be seen but unfortunately not his face.
None of these three people are still alive. I’m afraid I cannot identify any of the three riders but club badges are prominent on all the bikes. The Norwich Vikings Motorcycle Club was prominent at the time, and could be connected.
