What is it?

As your “Veteran—Edwardian—Vintage” readers consistently show amazing knowledge and interest in every type of old vehicle, I wonder if any of them have a clue as to the identity of the magnificent machine featured in the enclosed photograph? The radiator has a very distinctive shape and the fire-fighting equipment is of an advanced design for the period, but neither has meant very much to the many people who have seen the picture, and this includes the curator of the Kent Fire Brigade Museum, who kindly lent me their original print. The registration number is no help as the local authority concerned has lost all its records of this period.
