Hello,

The book "Equiment of the Dutch Army in 1939-1940 [Holland Paraat! Number 1]" I saw a photo of the Harley-Davidson motorcycle, armed with a machine gun Lewis M.20. Except for a few photos unarmed motorcycles, no further information has been found. Maybe it was a prototype of the Harley-Davidson armed? How many Harley-Davidson motorcycles were Dutch Army? Were they armed? In what units they were??

Please help
Thanks.

There were 4000 of those made between 1942-1945. The were deployed all over not just one theater.

Actually more that 90,000 WLA and WLC were made from 1942-45. You stated that the picture was between 1939-1940 there were none available, could of been leftover from WW1 as Harlry didn’t start manufacture until the US joined the war in 1942 for manufacture of the WLA.
