1982 Shelvoke Appliance VDV143X

Seen at the Llandudno Transport Festival, North Wales, United Kingdom in May 2006.
I very much suspect that the box body has been fitted later.

It did, it was a TL with Devon Fire Service. It was bought by Suffolk fire Service in 1993 and converted into a BA Control Unit/ Tender, entering service in 1994 at Colchester Rd, Ipswich. Hope this helps.
