Austin A125 Sheerline. KDG = 1951, but KOG = 1950 and as a Birmingham plate would suggest a factory fleet car. My hunch is go for KOG, but you've seen it onscreen, so the responsibility is yours ....

And the A40 Devon Countryman behind could be interesting if a better view available. (in production 1948-52. My dad's first car was a green one - JUV 995 (issued Dec 1952) - bought 2nd hand 26:10:58 for £285/0s/0d)

Where can I see a certified British-plate-"D", to compare?

How could you?

Bentley indeed!


The O is an O, an identical character appears on the number plate of my Bentley, registered in Birmingham, 1953

Difficult (or Oifficult, if you prefer). Plate fonts varied between plate manufacturers until recently (2001??) when ANPR meant a single font was legally specified. Squared fonts which would make O and D similar tended to be 80s+ (maybe reflecting early PC computer screen fonts for glamour??). Most 50s fonts would have rounded D (more like this one as a random example).
