So maybe you can identify it as a Thornycroft anyhow.

Here is a site that may give some clues. http://www.thornycroft.org.uk/Thornycroft%20Group%20N.htm Seems that it could be a J type.

This one is fairly close to it. http://www.thornycroft.org.uk/Images_AB/Thornycroft_AB8.jpg http://www.thornycroft.org.uk/Images_AB/Thornycroft_AB7.jpg

Leyland A Type "Subsidy" truck from 1912 onwards, either 30cwt or 3-Ton, chassis that has been restored or a replica.

The wheels, radiator and front bar are typical of trucks made by Leyland, initially sold for commercial use then resold to the government for later use in WWI.
