Memorandum:-
Reference your
April, 1942.
I fully appreciate the need for some arrangement
for season tickets for R.A.F. vehicles.
Monthly season tickets for vehicles using the
Manama-Moharraq bridge are available. I enclose a
sample ticket.
The rates vary according to the type of vehicle
and are as follows:- *■
Lorries and buses 1 ton and over Rs.75/- per month.
Tourers 30/- "
Station wagons and buses under
1 ton 60/- "
Motorcycles 7/8 "
I would suggest that the season tickets should be
carried in the vehicle or pasted on the wind screen in
addition to the Roundel so that the date of the expiry
of the ticket would be visible.
