Captain C.K. Shepherd was born at home in Birmingham England in 1895 and served in the Royal Flying Corps and Royal Air Force in World War One as an Equipment Officer assigned to the Aircraft Engine Repair Shops (ERS) in France. Following the War, arrived in America in June 1919 and spent the next two months driving his brand-new Henderson motorcycle from New York to San Francisco. In 1922, he published an instant classic about his journey: Across America by Motor-Cycle.
