This truck is rather short coupled. Emblem removed.

I'm going to guess Hug because the spring mount cross member pivots in the center.

Well this could be either and FWD/Hardy RT6 or an AEC 0850. This was the result of a relationship forged in late 1929 between AEC, the English Four Wheel Drive Lorry Co Ltd and Hardy Rail Motors Ltd.  The original R6T was built at the FWD factory in Slough.  Type 850s with AEC A136 engines that were built at Southall between 1932 and 1936. We had some of these in Israel/Palestine in the 30s during the Arab uprising; I've no idea whether they were still in service during the early part of WWII but if they were in the Middle East they might have been sent to the Western Desert. They were replaced in service ultimately by the AEC Matador, which used the same technology as the 0850 but had a diesel engine and more popular as a 4X4. So you could say all wheel drive AECs had their genes in an FWD design...

This is NOT a true Coleman, but I do suspect it has FWD genes in it somewhere...

It looks like Tuttlebrain did all the hard work for me tonight. This is indeed a 1929 FWD ENGLAND RT6 gun tractor. Since they used a nearly identical logo I am going to assume that FWD England built trucks under license to the U.S. FWD company. I have seen photos of a wrecker version of this truck still in service in 1940, so it is quite possible that some were still in service during the war. Jack Amaral had this 1st. Thanks to T for all the info. Photos are from the Imperial War Museum website.
