Evening all,

Can anyone id this lorry, as seen in 1915? I said I'd post it here to see if anyone recognises it.



thanks, RJ

That's a hard one Rick. It will be a subsidiary lorry but that radiator isn't giving much away.

It isn't the most common suspects, the AEC Y type or the Thorneycroft J type, they both have quite distinctive radiators.

It is a Peerless, the angular radiator top and no badge present can identify it.

Excellent thanks, a search on google brings up a very similar image of just such a machine. I'll pass on the info.

Oops! I was too late again!

It might be a Peerless. Apart from the header shape it's quite distinctive with that heavy chassis member across the front.
