Three taxis in use, all Austin 12/4, if I am correct:

Can't date LH 62 (main) but seems a genuine London series in early 30s. YY 387 issued Sept-Nov 32. "YH 310" looks as if a letter before the Y has been blanked out.

"YH 310" is DYH310 commonly seen in movies.

LH 62 was never registered by Mann & Overton as an Austin taxi and has not appeared AFAIK as a full or partial registration in other movies so possibly a false number.

OK, LH 62 is really FLH 626 a Strachan bodied Low Loader of 1939, YY 387 is DYY 387 a Jones bodied Low Loader of 1937, and YH 310 is really DYH 310 a Strachan bodied Low Loader of 1937. This last cab is probably better known as PEG 1, as it also appeared in 'Carry on Cabbie'.
