My entry is:

Leyland
Inter
ACCO
Ford
ACCO
Leyland Octopus
J Model Bedford
With headlights - a tricky one. May be a J Model Jeep looks too round for Land Rover.
Inter

Can't pick the tractor.

I can't see an Octopus, unless they found one with only six tentacles.

Looks like 8 wheels to me near the collapsed stairway.

The headlight vehicle on closer inspection seems to be a full size truck. Pretty certain it is a green Inter last in line. Maybe headlights is another J Bedford with black guards not showing well in photo?

Think Swishy be correct, early butterboxes were designated AACO 180, available same time as AA180. Twin headlights and vertical grill bars.
If photo is 1962 that would add up.

I introduced the Octopus, in hindsight I think wee-allis is right. What I thought was an 8x4 (or 8x2) is actually a 6x4 or 6x2.
the 4x4 could be an Austin Gypsy.

I have blown up as high as possible. The Leyland/Albion near the stairs only has one steer axle.

I think an earlier suggestion of headlights being a Land Rover with a trailer looks a good bet. Being a council operation far more likely than an Austin Gypsy or a Jeep.

Date is 1967 Cyclone not the equally destructive 1962 event. The Magazine price is 15c so after 1966.

Any Ideas on the White tipper at the bottom of the photo??

Looks a bit like a tilt cab ACCO but they never came out until 1972...So I t can't be one of them.....
