1955 Viking Severn Valley Transfers

Down Tube:

At this stage the transfer appears to be a darker grey on a pale grey frame.  It is not known whether the transfer has faded or changed colour over the years.

Seat Tube:

     

I believe this to be the first style of "First Tour of Britain" transfer.  The "Olympic Rings" appear to have the red and green transposed - the official order, from left to right, is blue, yellow, black, green, red.  The stripes are the same colours as the Olympic Rings and the order appears to be related to the order of the rings as shown - top row left to right followed by bottom row left to right, then turned upside down.  The UCI World Champion stripes are the same colour as these stripes, but the order, top to bottom, is blue, red, black, yellow, green.

Does Viking have an Olympic or World Championship connection?
