Harley Davidson WLA 'Liberators' - Walt's Daughter - 05-30-2007

Found this video clip on the forum I found I've been visiting this week,


The post itself is all in Dutch, so I just copied the video link. Hey Daan, can you tell us anything about this since it's on your forum? :pdt12:

Hi Marion,


That topic was started by a Belgium forum member, he owns a Harley Davidson and has made a website about those bikes, it's an English website and very interesting! Take a look;

Fantastic site. I've still looking through it right now. Have already spent over a half hour just browsing. Some super photographs.


As I stated to you in a PM today, my dad was riding a motorcycle on May 24, 1944, when he was injured by a mortar shell at Anzio.

I wrote to Johan yesterday regarding my dad and he wrote back today. Thank you so much Johan! :drinkin:


Hi Marion,


Your father would most likely have been riding a Harley-Davidson Model WLA Motorcycle as pictured on my site.


The US Army used mostly Harley and some Indians during WW2, but by 1944 about 99% of the bikes in use in Europe would have been Harleys...


Talk soon,
