Zepher estate car (station wagon) and MGA police cars.
Two photos above are cars registered to the Lancashire police district.

The second two letters on the number plate determine the place of first registration. The other letter and the numbers are sequential and unique to each car. There was no way to identify the year of first registration until 1963 when the "A" suffix was introduced in some areas. The letters TC were used for Bristol and Lancashire.
