Thornycroft perhaps? Looks like a compressor truck or auxiliary power support vehicle for aircraft rather than fire truck to me.

Thornycroft and a fire tender definetly.
Hubs give it away.
Never seen body like that before but there were so many specialist fire engine builders in UK.

Found I believe as a Kidde-Sun Crash Tender as probably built on a Thornycroft Nubian 4x4 chassis.

Cab is the same an most of the body is very similar to some exported to Eire in 1951 centre of this advert...

Possibly has a rear mounted foam delivery system. edit: Looks like a new vehicle at the time of filming.

Well done , did the CM archive give you a start as I found one there for right period but it had a different body style.

No JCB.

I searched all CM Archive references with no luck; only google plus your certainty that it was a fire engine!

(Found under Sun Engineering - knowing they used Nubians.)
