  Turkish car number plates - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Turkish car number plates are license plates found on Turkish vehicles.
On all vehicles two plates have to be present, being one in front and the other in rear.
In some provinces, numbering is categorized in groups for tax collecting offices of different districts, for example Dolmuş in Ankara have plates of the form "06 J 9999" and a(ny) vehicle from Polatlı,Ankara have plates of the form '06 Pxx 99'.

The government’s refusal to accept the minority’s Turkish identity has ranged from banning civic organizations bearing the adjective “Turkish” in their titles to prosecuting individuals who publicly identified the minority as “Turkish.”39 Greek courts have outlawed the use of the word "Turkish" to describe the Turkish minority.
Ethnic Turkish teachers working in minority schools need not follow the same procedures for other schools nor have the same qualifications, so the secretary general’s suggestion is somewhat misleading and not really a solution to their plight.
He reported that, “The Turkish texts are retrograde and old-fashioned....the Turkish books are for students in Turkey; they contain several nationalist tones which of course could never be accepted.”121 The minority and Turkish officials, on the other hand, argue that the books that Greek officials rejected were corrected and sent back for final approval.

 Review of Milicasts 1/76 Royce-Royce British Armoured Car (1920 Pattern)
The gear-box was a four-speed type in 1914 cars although it is believed that a few earlier cars with the three-speed gear­box may also have been among those converted to armoured cars.
In Africa the cars won praise for their mechanical reliability (although conditions in some areas pre­cluded the use of the higher gears for days on end), but the twin Rudge Whit­worth rear wheels filled with Rubberine (a puncture sealing substance) were often in urgent need of replacement.
Space was limited inside the car, however, and for this reason sometimes the crew was only two, in which case the driver fed the machine-gun, when driving, with one hand.
