Mr. Paaso,
I like military motorcycles and I have many books on them.

I am listing here the ones I have in my personal library. I would like to
point out that they are NOT technical manuals
but historical books with many black & white photos. I am inviting the
members of the List to suggest any book missing from this list. Please,
give the most complete book reference! Thanks to all!

I think that "British Forces Motorcycles 1925-1952" may be useful for you.
I do not have the book here, but if you wish so, I can check it at home and
let you know if it contains info on the Triumph and the BSA M-20.

Keep them rolling!
