The ‘Blitz Troop’, as the assault platoon was commonly known in the regiment, provided the commander with a motorcycle-mounted infantry force able to keep up with the light tanks, and then dismount to clear obstacles and assault troublesome anti-tank guns.

The troop rode into battle upon the lightweight 125cc motorcycles such as the famous Royal Enfield ‘Flying Flea’. This motorcycle was so light that it could be lifted over obstacles, but so small that it only carried the rider and his personal kit, making one motorcycle per man a necessity.
