Once Navy - Always Navy



Car Licence Plates

Following a  Royal Navy News item - featuring a Wren in Southern Ontario posing by her car with Licence Plate


I decided to publish some of the Royal Naval Association Southern Ontario, Toronto Naval Club Members' and other nautical plates.  If you know of an interesting or unusual one with a Nautical or Naval flavour, please let me know.  I was never able to track down the owner of the plate above, or acquire a picture of it.
