Thank you, Sarah,


I am trying to build the provenance of the plates.

We know the owner - my wife's late brother.

We have a photo of the car but only a side view - which does not show the
registration plates.

Ideally we want to link the plates to the car and/or owner.


A friend coined a word for this detective work: "carcheology".

According to the list in my 1952 ed. of the RAC Guide & Handbook, marks
ending in "GT" were issued by the London County Council - but that's all I
can tell you.  (Apparently, when they ran out of numbers to use with the
2-letter prefix, an initial letter was added; anybody know when they got to
letter "D"?)

I have a set of plates that were on a Mk1 Jaguar imported to New Zealand in
the sixties.

The number is 600 DGT

I believe it may have been issued in the greater London area around 1958.


Can any of you British listers help me identify it?
