I have an old AA badge, the number on it is 043996. Are you able to narrow this one down to a particular year and/or vehicle?

The number on the badge wasn’t the membership number and unfortunately can’t be tied back to a particular vehicle.
It looks like yours is from somewhere between 1906 and 1930:
- 1 to 999999 1906–30
- A-P suffixes 1930–45
- RST suffixes 1946–56 (flat motorcycle badges)
- WXYZA suffixes 1956–67 (domed motorcycle badges)
- OA to OZ prefixes 1945–57
- 1A-9A prefix 1957–59
- 1B-9B prefix 1960–61
- 1C-9C prefix 1962–63
- 1D-9D prefix 1964–65
- 1E-9E prefix 1966–67
