I knew at the back of mind that I had the wrong name. I used to play darts with Erland in the Darts League many years ago. Added by Phil Brough.

Judging by the registration number the van was first registered in 1973. It is a BMC (Leyland) FG model. Does anyone know who built the library body? BMC would only supply the chassis and front scuttle.
