So, is it a Light Twelve Roadster?

Ö Brom-hum, 'Light Twelve' doesn't seem to exist.
Twelve?

According to "Motor car index 1928-1939", (originally published by Fletcher and Sons Ltd of Norwich, but in my case a reprint by Autopress Ltd of Brighton in 1964), it depends on the year it was made.

A few examples:
In 1934 there were "Ten", "Big 12" and "Twenty".
In 1935 there were "Super Mod 12", "Ten", "Big Twelve", "Light Twelve" and "Light Twenty".
In 1936 there were "Ten", "S. Mod. Twelve", "Sports Twelve" and "S. Mod. Fifteen".
In 1937 there were "Twelve", "Sprts Twelve", "Family Fifteen" and "Fifteen".
In 1938 there were "Twelve", "Light Fifteen", "Fifteen", Family Fifteen Petrol" and "Family Fifteen Oil"
In 1939 there were "Twelve", "Light Fifteen" and "Big fifteen".

Seems difficult to tell which version :think:

What side should I highlight to help for identification? There are not too many angles for this car (and the bonnet is never open).

I'm sure there're those who know these cars better than I do.
But having seen some I know they seems to vary on certain areas, like the wheels and the bumper. I believe some pictures of those might be appreciated.

Really, I won't give better than these:

(But the other 'Traction' didn't receive much more recognition, though 19 times illustrated.)

After having read somewhat about the Traction cars http://www.cats-citroen.net/citroen_tractionavant/index.html (click on England), I believe, but I'm far from certain, that the fact that this one has flaps instead of "Louvres" on the sides of the hood/bonnet, suggests it's a pre war model.
This http://www.cats-citroen.net/images/photos/ta/england/11lcab_002a.jpg 1939 "Light Fifteen Roadster" seems rather similar, but I suppose the Twelve cannot be ruled out.
I don't know how to tell the Twelve and the Fifteen apart.

Years possible 1936-39. Must be a roadster.

(Ö) On the roadsters, the windscreen can no longer be put flat.

I don't know how to tell different windscreen mechanisms apart either...
I'm sorry.

But I'm almost sure it's a Roadster :p
