    I'm pretty positive it is not British. That style of brake is uncharacteristic of English bikes, more of something you'd expect to find on a Dutch or German bike.

    This 1939 German made Falke shares some similarities: http://oldbike.wordpress.com/1939-falke ... ad-german/

    It even appears to have a similar cotterless crank.

    The M on the chainguard, and the M motif on the chainwheel would seem to suggest some brand that starts with an M. Magneet maybe?
