Help, Malaya 1950. Is the truck a Chevvy 30?
Lorry on right looks like a Bedford 15 cwt.
The one on the left looks like a Humber Mk1 or 2 scout car (only real difference was gearboxes).
I'd have said Bedford from that front too... Will double check.
Edit: Bedford 15CWT fine by me, just wanted to see if there was any other possibility first.
Are they WW2 vintage? The armored car certainly looks like it? did it have any armament?
Both WW2, Humber scout usually carried a Bren Gun (remotely operated if I remember right).
Here's an article on the Scout Car that the "Tank Boffins" may find interesting:WarWheels.Net - British Armoured Cars In Europe - 1944-1945

Great stuff - really nice that the owner's made the effort to ID every vehicle.
(And plenty of FV600 types. Everything's improved by the presence of FV600s)
Nothing wrong with a spot of post-war when it's of this quality.
