David, I saw this for sale - glad its being saved. Is it staying local (Kent)? Very little could be seen under the sheet in the sale photo's but it doesn't look too bad. This is the 2nd Kent Commer to be rescued recently from the Maidstone area!

I'll post a shot that's on my system, showing PKO 556 when it was with Glory Mill.

This machine served at Glory Mill Wooburn Green, alongside my Dennis Ace for many years. My late father was in the works brigade.
