Aden’s Indian period.

1914-37  – Aden was originally administered by the Bombay Presidency as a dependency of  British India.     The style of the mainland India plates was for smaller area code-letters, than the serial numbers.     Here is rare evidence of Aden’s Indian plate background on Aden 1238.       These cars would have travelled outside Aden carrying   ‘BI‘  international ovals!
