Does anyone have any information about H.T.H Mansel. In 1950s he owned a fleet of Commers in Lautoka, Fiji Islands. Those Commers were very tough trucks and so was Mr Mansel himself. Mr Mansel drove an Anglia.

I am from Sri Lanka and I have similar commer vehicle, which was originally bought by my father in 1950. It is in bad shape and I intend repairing it to its original condition. I am looking out for some pictures of the front parts as I wish to attend to the corrosion and repairs specially the mud guards and the structures, such as the cross bars etc which fits it to the chasis, the radiator, front grill. I would appreciate if I could have some picture of these parts at least in order to turn them out locally. Thanks & regards. Collin
