Can anyone identify this British Truck?

Think this old girl is ex RAF. A bit like a short version of a Green Goddess, only not much in the way of visible firefighting equipment.

 

Would love to know what it is, and what it may have served as.

 

Thanks in anticipation

To be precise, this was a Thornycroft Dual Purpose (DP) fire tender, its role was in fire, crash and domestic duties. Was supplied to the RAF as a supplement to the Mk6 Foam Crash tender, carrying extra water supplies for it, and could also be used for domestic fire fighting. Carried 700 galls of water with a Coventry Climax pump with 500 gall per minute output

No Tony, that is a Mk7 (VII), came much later.

 

Best stick to Dodges mate :D

 

Long day mate! That's why it's sideways. :D There are a couple of Thornycroft Fire tenders in the 1966 Chertesy book. So what date is the Mk 6 then?
