    The show was held from 25 September to 3 October 1964. (Judging by the lack of people the footage was probably shot the day before the opening.)

    The vehicles seen at 00:53 and 01:02 are both Thames Trader trucks.

    At 01:16 we see the chassis of a Land Rover.

    At 01:20 we see an Atkinson Guardsman truck, in the livery of Bulwark Transport.

    "Alvis Stalwart, possibly an armoured vehicle." - it's an amphibious military vehicle.
