For the early MGAs with only one fog lamp and no relay (as opposed to 
those imported into the US late in '58 and beyond, which would be fitted 
with two fog lamps and a relay), the fog lamp would be mounted on the off 
side. For driving on the right side of the road, that would be mounted on 
the right bumper bracket. For UK, Oz, Japan, and wherever else you drive 
on the left side of the road, the fog lamp would be mounted on the left 
bumper bracket.

Mine is aimed 'out there", too (and can be seen in the second photo on 
the page, below.)
