Hi Johan, I knew you would bite...... Bessie was a civilian who was a messenger for the US army i believe, and she rode a Knucklehead from what i can make out. The Royal Navy, RAF,and british army used female despatch riders, have found i pic of i think New Zealand females sat on a WLC. The more i thought about the more i thought i've never seen WAC's on WLA's. There were hundreds of female Harley riders from 1903 right through the war years on 45's and big twins. But never military.
