Ahoy !

I heard of this second hand so, I cannot provide details.

I am told that one of the televised Memorial Day holiday (formerly Decoration Day) programs with WWII film footage showed BSA made bicycles that were foldable and used by certain squads of paratroopers for quick travel between objectives.

Has anyone seen one of these bicycles ? Anybody own one ?

Can anyone corroborate or provide additional information ?
