HO2857/2858 were not formally registered until 1921. Photographs show HO2857 carrying trade plates AA002 and it is possible that both vehicles bore such plates until formal registration, since there is no other record of registration before this date.
HO2857/2858 also quoted as Ch28.
HO2324 also quoted as B28F.
