Picture was taken during the euphemistically called "2nd politionele actie" on Java, Indonesia in januari 1949.

I remember being somewhere in Java around 1990 and the town seems to be full of BSA side valves pulling sidecars (M20/M21 I think), these were being used as taxis. They were painted in bright colours and would have parts interchanged with anything that would keep the wheels rolling. I wonder whether they are still there?
