The plate seems to be NNW 433P. If it is really P, then I guess it was rebuilt re-registered...

Is it an 'F'?

Maybe, though this design looks for older than 1967/68 too...

Seems to be about 1955 design from comparison with a couple of book photos. But I know Sweet Ford Anglia about trucks, so don't quote me. I tried various plate check permutations for NNx 433P which matched several issued series, but got no result.

Judging by the Google search results, this design with headlamps below bumper was much less common than this of the 2nd Thornycroft Nubian used in this TV series.

Thornycroft 4x4 Mk5A Crash Tender looks similar and the resulting RAF registration date would be 1954 or thereabouts.

Knowing little about these, the body/appliance manufacturer would be probably different to the Thornycroft chassis?

Yes Thornycroft only built chassis with or without cabs never fire bodywork.

According to a fire engine book I have number is NNM433P.
Body by Universal Motors , Fire fighting kit by Pyrene.
