    The show was held 17-28 May 1965.

    I'm certainly no expert on commercial vehicles, but I believe the following are shown;

    At 01:37, an Austin FJ horse transporter.

    At 02:38, a 5cwt Austin Mini with a Minatic trailer.

    At 03:16, an Austin Mini van.

    At 03:26, a Mini Moke.

    At 03:40, an Austin LD ambulance.

    At 03:47, an Austin J4 light van.
