    These booklets are a slightly smaller variation on the "Standing Orders for Drivers of Mechanical Vehicles (Wheeled) and Motor Cyclists" of which I have a March 1939-dated copy. There is a note inside stating that drivers should have it in their posession (no excuse for not knowing the rules !) and that it may be kept with the AB64....Yours looks to have become damp with the AB64 ! They are not all that uncommon...probably because tens of thousands of drivers brought them home in their paperwork but they had become obsolete due to the fall of France.
