Triumph TRW Mk3 1964 - M.P. Use?

Hello Everyone,

I would appreciate input regarding how to determine if my bike was used by the military police .

I have the vehicle data card which shows its movements:

Pro Unit RMP BAOR on 21/7/67 then to 17 RVD BOAR on 21/11/68.

It then went to ORD depot Belgium BOAR on 16/3/70 

Then to 1 (BR) corps VEH coy BOAR on 10/3/75.

It appears to have been taken out of service on 31/7/75 described by transaction S/O VVA

(whatever that stands for) None of this seems to suggest it was used as a M.P. bike, it does

however have M.P. in red on a white background on the tip of the front mudguard.

I don't believe the bike has been restored & is in very original order. The only other thing that

makes me think it was used by the M.P. , is the fitment of a handlebar switch going through a relay

in the headlamp but not connected to the lights?

Sorry for all the detail but I'm hoping it assists.

Regards Rob

Thanks for your reply

That makes sense, the wires were routed into the handlebars but not connected to anything!

I'll perhaps re-install one day.

My bike is also slow & running very rich but the solex carb doesn't have a needle for height

adjustment so I will have to do some research to find out how to weaken the mixture.
