Where is the reverse gear in my Reliant Robin?

Where is the reverse gear in my Reliant Robin?

Every 1973-on Reliant Robin was fitted with reverse gear. Up until 1963, only people with a full car licence could have a reverse gear on a three-wheeler so motorcycle licence holders with no car licence had to have the reverse gear blanked off, which affected some Regals (the Robin's predecessor). Early Robins had reverse off to the left and down (lifting up the gear knob as you do it). Later cars were to the right and down (again lifting the gear knob).
