This is the Leslie Henry T5 Oil Tanker in dark blue. It is 115mm long (including couplings), 20mm wide and 34mm high.

It is a one piece casting with all detail such as wheels, body lines and trim, etc. cast into the metal. There is no glazing or base to the model. On the under-side the model carries the legend "T-5, Made in" cast on a single line in the centre of the casting, the "Londontoy" and "Canada" having been blanked out. The mold number "3" is forward of the "T5" on this model. The wheels are made of black plastic on flat axles that pass through the wheels and are pinch-clamped to the flat columns that protrude from the body of the model.

This item is thought to have been issued circa 1950.
