 Produced from 1940 to 1942, produced totally 365 copies. Externally identical to other E-series trucks, it was included to F range, as equipped with chain-driven rear wheels and F series heavy chassis

Seemed to me like they were just built in different years. Probably differences in the chassis either but impossible to state without observations.

I also had that question in my mind.

FP built from  1940  to 1942    365 units made.

ER build from 1936 to 1941   359 units made.

Main differences were heavier chassis , springs, steer axle and Military spec lifting eyes on chassis. Balance of the truck was E series. Originally spec'd out for the French.

Pre WWII French and British had basically Civilian pattern trucks prior to the start of hostilities in 1940.
