A genuine Electricity Board vehicle would identify which one.

I don't think this is a genuine Electric Board vehicle , looks like a temporary sign on side. Its strange that the GPO and Gas vehicles are genuine because film pokes fun at the utilities , dozens of men get out of their vans, all watch one man work and all dig the same hole up many times with the gas people also causing an explosion !
plus ca change

Think I've misread your comment dsl :)
Reg.no. is 17 UWX or 17 UMX

MX - London South East (Middlesex to 1965, Greater London to 1974) compared to other utilities (North Thames Gas) is the most likely (WX Leeds - W. Yorkshire).

The separate regional electricity boards were set up in 1947. The sign's wording should be LEB (London Electricity Board), Eastern Electric or similar with actual branding or logo.

xxx UMX = March-July 59, xxx UWX seems unissued series.

Thats good dsl I've been trying to get the date... Without the 'lollypop' turn signals it looks to be before 1961.

For the second time, I choose another frame. The original should have been this, at 1500:

Bedford J6S or J7S Diesel from 1959 onwards - short wheelbase.

6 or 7 ton Truck, normal control 120" short wheelbase (J5 was only standard 167" wheelbase).

Plate is 1234 AB format, not as discussed above, but can't read it properly. 1959 date therefore up for grabs.

Could be '25??WY' (not possible as WV I believe) - Yorkshire 1961 onwards?

If WY = spring 61. WV not issued, nor any other obvious mix V/Y/X/M/W
