I don't know much about cars, L, but would this be helpful?

It's an Austin Seven. Interesting that members of the A7 forum are puzzled about the number plate - read here ...
Austin Seven Friends forum - Foyle's War thread

Tip: When wishing to identify a vehicle used in a particular show on TV or in films, Google the number plate. Image

Incidentally, a fun thing to note on the website Chris linked to is the list of names FW is known as in some countries:
Foylen sota (Finland)
O polemos tou Foyle (Greece)
Kriminalsjef Foyle (Norway)
Detektyw Foyle (Poland)

Thanks, Lynne and Chris. The discussion on the Austin Seven Forum is at times hilarious. One member even nit-picked the style of long johns hanging on a washing line, saying they weren't available at M&S until 1948. How the heck would he know that!? :rofl:
