Yes, it seems to match in design, if not colour, with this one that I saw on a Regal 3 at a recent Southern Classics event (which reminds me, I intended to post some photos of it :oops: )

AlanSS1 will be along shortly, but yes it's a Regal 3/30 horn push. Earlier cars had the red version

So then who knows what 3/30 stands for ?

The one I saw just said Regal 3 on the badge, so I guess that that might tie in with being earlier?

As for what it stands for, no idea really, but I'd hazard a guess at 3 wheels/30 hp?

he would do but as this is for 'other four wheeled Reliants' , he doesn't frequent this page very often :-)

and yes it does loo awffy like the centre button on mine, note I used 'mine' not 'ours' as SWAMBO takes no part in the owning, driving, or even association :wink:

and as we are in quiz mode, what did 21e stand for ?
