Is this the type the dutch bought?

Added by John Gibson on 02 March 2017.
Yes. Traders were quite popular in both Belgium and the Netherlands, but never caught on in the UK. The London Salvage Corps had a few, but with a completely coach built body, which looked quite different.

Looking at the registration number, I think this unit was probably a lot earlier than 1966. By 1966 the D series was available.

Rob - 1966 was the year of the photo, not the appliance manufacture.

Thanks Rob, i think they look very smart.

This was delivered new in 1963 to the City of Oxford and stationed at Rewley Road, Oxford and served there until going OOS in 1978.

If you look up Traders on the search box on this site you will see a handful of examples, including a few from Australia and New Zealand.
