ANOTHER MYSTERY

September 18, 2015

Thanks all for the identification of my previous photo from British India.      I have another old photograph in my collection that I can’t identify, N 64545.       Maybe it’s glaringly obvious to the trained eye, as to where it was registered – any ideas?

Mystery motorcycle plate

January 15, 2013

201203687DW.unknown pe

Does anyone know what this is? I shot it on the front fender/mudguard of a (fairly modern, if I remember correctly, but I’m no bike expert) motorcycle in Bangkok at the end of April 2012. It was stuffed into a market stall, whether parked there for the day or permanently enconced, I had no idea. The stall-man and I traded smiles as he seemed to enjoy my interest in the machine, but the language barrier permitted little else. The rear was totally inaccessible so I never saw the rear plate; it was one of those hit-and-run moments, and this picture is all I was left with.    from David Wilson

 

Roger, Bernt & Alex quickly ran this display plate to earth!    See comments below:


Pemberton quiz

December 19, 2012

Member John Pemberton saw a Jeep in Piccadilly, London, in the 1950s, and having no camera, transcribed its Bengali/Nepali/w.h.y. script.     Can one of our specialists identify that plate?

Nepal has been suggested.    A Nepali looked like this:

(NEP4)(p Lv)_Ba1Pa6509_cuf_VBjb (NEP3to4)(commv)_U.Kaa.A530_cu_VB19651208 (NEP3a)_BaA5126_cu_ITpl-vb

 

 

Surprisingly, at March 2013, no readers have ventured any more suggestions – where are those accumulated years of experience???? (VB)

Now see a good suggestion from EU 575 below….

J&K 68  --  The dual-plated lorry on which the writer hitch-hiked from Patna to Kathmandu in 1965, carried Nepali and Jammu & Kashmir commercial plates.

More Mystery

October 13, 2011

This BMW2000S coupé was parked in Queens Gate, London for about a year during the 1970s, bearing this unexplained plate.    Next to it was an Austin Mini with similar plates, which I didn’t photograph, it seems!    Once I saw the driver and he claimed that the cars were from Burundi – but I have never believed it….   What do YOU think?

The BMW was seen and photographed by another Europlate member, Simon Brazel, by coincidence.    Do you still have your photo, Simon?
