Re: Interesting AA facts?
I have a similar volume, and it's fascinating. Two things stand out:
1) Navigating - it includes a UK road map, but the roads are un-numbered (not sure when they actually did that).
2) The wonderful London Pilot Service - don't fancy driving/navigating across London? Book an AA pilot! Bit like a pilot for bringing ships into port. You arrange a place to meet on the outskirts of London, and your pilot will then sit with you and give you directions (sort of human GPS - bloody robots, taking our jobs) or even drive the car for you until you get to the other side.
