Can you help us date our tandem?

Hi

We are currently restoring a tandem bike. We are pretty sure it is a Hercules ~ 1930's however there is a possibility, after looking at other frames online, it could be a Merlin - unknown date.

Can anyone help?

After stripping the paint we discovered this frame number RI054 on the rear seat, on the rear forks there is the number 19B.

Any help much appreciated!!
