Comment (as provided by Brian Slingsby):  This vehicle has a workshop body on, but it is a Swiss army conversion.  They used this type of body after the war. You can tell by the curved roof and recessed rear wheel arches to get the body lower. Apparently they did this as they have a lot of low arched railway bridges that the trucks in standard workshop van body style wouldn’t get under!
