Top photo showing the start of UK machinery being replaced by foreign competition.
Classic photo withe Perkins powered Dodge being loaded by a Weatherill 12H, probably the late 50s.

Recovery truck ,right hand drive maybe because getting getting out on busy roads easier on nearside ?

Seen lots of native Italian trucks with RHD because they prefer to be near the edge on mountain roads but not seen French one .
Not all those who wander are lost.
