Thanks Keith, very useful comments :)

I think I've seen Comrade mentioned somewhere else while looking for information, so that might be worth me following up

I recently purchased a CWS bicycle at an estate sale, with a headbadge similar to the other pictured, but the headbadge is not painted. From what I can tell it is a 3 speed bicycle, potentially with Reynolds tubing, and it also has an interesting straight hand pump with what looking like matching mounts that whistles a bit when used. I'll post some pictures soon if possible. Anyone know of any other resources where I could find more information?[/img]

I was toying with the idea of trying the National Co-operative Archives in Manchester: ... e-archive/
