It's a Salford registration, second and third letters are RJ respectively. It would be odd for a Surrey registered vehicle to be used by the Manchester Police.

Would be fantastic to see your photo of 706F Fricsman. I owned it in 76/77 - see my earlier post. I too believe it went to Belgium.

After a quick search on the interwebs it looks like it was part of a council estate know as the Hulme Crescents in Manchester, built around 1971. As was proven many times, these estates soon lost their shine, this one being labelled the worst in England. Demolished started in 1991.

The photos were taken early 1968 in Birchfields Park, Fallowfield for the Manchester Evening News. As my father noted Manchester City Police cars always had good registration numbers because the Police were responsible for the VRO! I'll post another photo in the same series.
