More Togo 1970s and on

 

 

Another delivery/transit Togolese Peugeot 404 Familiale, this time with an AE suffix. All meanings unknown. Brumby archive, via Murray Bailey c 1971.

RT AE — Another delivery/transit-plated Togolese Peugeot 404 Familiale, this time with the Foreign Aid code AE as suffix. This abbreviates Assistance Etrangé, and perhaps the car will be issued the RT-AE ‘Aid’ plates shown next……. …………Brumby archive, via Murray Bailey c 1971, Cote d’Ivoire.

The only Togo seen by EU38 in 55 years - in Swiss Cottage, London, in 1970 and photographed by VB and Terry Gray separately. Renault 16. The red plates covered the teporary importation of Foreign Aid personnel for the duration of their Togo posting, and avoided the rigors of import duties.

This surprising image via Yves Lausseq is said to be from Togoland during the period it was administered by France as a Trusteeship, in the 20s to the 50s. A German colony until WW1, it was subsequently managed by GB and France until independence in 1956. Numerals-only! Thank you Yves.
