WW1 – 100 Thorneycroft Type J Lorry

IMAG0722


This Type J lorry was delivered to the War Office on 28 March 1916, and is one of about 5,000 Js produced by Thornycroft during WW1 for the military.

Many ex-military lorries which survived WW1 went into civilian use, as did this one which was sold in 1919 to W J Rothwell of Bolton.

This video was filmed during the drive back from the WW1 – 100th Commemoration Event at Winchester Great Hall.
