Well Richard it's like this, erm, I mean, in fact, no!

These guys get a buzz from getting through security and photographing what they see, interesting but I would not do it. Saying that, several of us in our yoof went to Ribbleton Lane in the early seventies and scaled a wall festooned with Securicor guard dog notices to get our hands on a pile of Mark D petrol tanks, that was a long time ago though. As you may expect I still have one.

Here is yet another of a Mark D in Aberdeen, shame as I remember this one at both Burford and Morecambe rallies a couple of decades ago.

EHF 519, that's from Up your Peninsula is it not Richard?? (starring Kenneth Williams & Barbara Windsor of course)

I thought it was LHF 519? (About half way down the page)

I can't make it out on my handheld , but interestingly KHF is a plain yellow G saloon on the same page lower still . Wasn't Mr. Robb busy !

Well done in finding that picture, exactly as I remember it.

It is definitely EHF, as Richard has pointed out KHF is a Mark G and there were some LHF Mark Gs in the early days.

My mate Robin was an avid collector of Bond numbers at that time and he has kindly given me his spreadsheets so I can confirm that EHF 519 is a May 1957 Mark D Family (Chassis no.  I / 05 / 13707RF) and Glass's guide tells me that EHF ran from November 1956 to March 1958

Trust that assists and apologies for the anorak stuff

9/10 Barry well done - have you made a resolution ? But to be properly RIP in my post the object is not meant to be positioned on beer barrels or whatever . The car should ideally have slid into obsolescance in a quiet unnoticed way .my garage is actually full of them now I think about it  ;)
