English 3 Speed

I'm trying to find information on an English 3 Speed I had when I was a kid. The only brand name I could find was "Royal" written on the seat tube and the steering head badge. I'm going strictly by memory now, I did not realize what a treasure I had. The words "made in England" were written on the top tube in small script. There was a generator light/tailight combo, full chrome fenders and Sturmey Archer shifter and Hub. I was wondering if anyone has heard of this brand or knows where I can look at pictures?

There is a vintage roadster forum at oldroads.com. They everything about old 3-speeds.
I loved my old Triumph "All Steel", so-called because it had a steel , not cast-iron bottom bracket lug. I used it as basic transportation, and never gave a though to any vintage value.

Click on the BCC, Royal, and Hercules links.
I hope it will provide some help.
