This old Commer "knocker" dates from the early 1950s and still is in service.

didn't that have some weird engine that gave it a distinctive sound, and the 'knocker' name?

Yes, they had a two stroke diesel with opposed pistons on common combustion chambers and two (outside) crankshafts geared to a final drive. And the resulting sound did indeed give the name. :)
