Yes i sent a similar letter to OLD BIKE MART to point out to them what they called the first trail bike (1960's Greeves Ranger) had already been pre-empted by FB some 10 years earlier.
Although if you go back to the 1920's firms like Norton produced a "Colonial" model of bikes like the 16H ( 16 Home) which had greater ground clearance for the rough roads of the colonies, so you could argue it was even earlier than the FB Overseas ??
