    Where & when was the pic taken? Its a Star 'Flyer' for many years owned by the late Jack Mulley of Ixworth, Suffolk who rebuilt it into a dropside lorry from a horsebox. It appeared in several episodes of Dads Army. Who owns this lorry now? The last owner change was 01/03/2004

    I'm sorry, Gary, these pictures were taken many, many years ago. I found hundreds of the old negatives and decided to digitalise them. My best guess is it was taken at Masham. You may have guessed my main interest is in Fodens, so I have no history for it.

    What year is this and do you have any more pics of this Leyland when Blue or any other earlier pics of it? I am trying to find out why the bonnet sides have been re-made.
