On 28 Feb 1913 The Royal Flying Corps (RFC) Tested 12 Douglas 348cc Model O and eight 3½hp Phelon and Moore twin speed motorcycles for testing and evaluation. This test included a 50 mile dash around the circuit at 30 mph followed immediately by a run up the Brooklands Test Hill. P&M won the contract and in Jan 1914 the War Office placed what was at the time the largest ever order for 20, 3½hp P&M machines. Thereafter every RFC P&M motorcycle was tested at Brooklands until January 1917. By the end of 1915 the RFC and Royal Naval Air Service (RNAS) were receiving 40 machines a week from P & M (see also EPW028336)
