Johan van der Woude (1919-1997) op de motor, een Triumph, met het Limburgse kenteken P 40806 (ca. 1950). Deze foto is van ca. 1950. Dit is vermoedelijk de 1942 Army Triumph 3HW 350cc side valve, gebaseerd op de Triumph 3H/Tiger 80; het kan ook een Army Triumph 3SW of 5SW zijn. Op de achtergrond de Royal Bioscoop van architect ir. Frits Peutz (1896-1974).

"Velen uit die tijd herinneren zich de secretaris van het gewest, Johan van der Woude, als iemand die voortdurend op zijn motorfiets door heel Limburg rijdend zijn aktiviteiten ontplooide; als opbouwwerker avant-la-lettre kwam hij nieuwe afdelingen oprichten", citaat uit: “Honderd jaar over de rooien; de sociaal-democratie in Limburg van 1889 tot 1989”, door Jan Reerink, Piet Wetzels en dr. Annemieke Klijn; Sittard, Gewest Limburg PvdA, 1989 (ISBN 90 9003128 6).

1942 Triumph 343cc 3HW Military Motorcycle:

"When war broke out in September 1939, Triumph's entire stock of completed civilian machines was requisitioned by the War Office. The Coventry firm went on to develop a 350cc twin-cylinder model – the 3TW – specifically for military use, only for the destruction of its factory in an air raid in November 1940 to scupper the project. Installed in new premises at Meriden, Warwickshire, Triumph recommenced production of the single-cylinder sidevalve 3SW and overhead-valve 3HW models, which were based on their civilian equivalents. The latter was based on the pre-war Tiger 80 sports roadster, the engine of which was modified to incorporate rocker boxes cast integrally with the cast-iron cylinder head, aluminium alloy being in short supply. Triumph's single-cylinder models were used mainly by the Royal Navy for despatch duties and general liaison, with the less-powerful 3SW reserved for the WRNS".
