A Dragonfly was not really a "10 bob" bike in the 1960s. Could it have been an Endeavour? Interesting and rare, a Douglas with shaft drive. http://www.douglasmotorcycles.net/index.php?topic=1595.0

Possibly Velocette LE or Valiant as both are shaft drive and the Valiant is quite similar to a Dragonfly!
