I've posted about this bike before. I believe it to be a 1947 Sport model based in the frame number and date on the dynohub.
I'm very confused about the original colour. I took off the head badge today to discover the original paint. It's a light teal colour. I cant fund this colour in mentioned even as an option in catalogues from 1940-1955 that I have found on line.
Your collective thoughts would be very helpful.

There looks to be quite a few Lenton Sports of that colour. The first pic is described as a 1947 Lenton Sport.

I have learned that the RRA based Charles Holland Continental was a pale blue colour and that almost none were sold. I should.mention that this is a ladies frame.
