I think you guys are missing the point. Its a bitsa (bits of this, bits of that) that had been pieced together from various years. The front axle is clearly from a Belgium truck, but with RHD steering arms, and early S2 drive flanges. The biggest head scratcher for me is the Rover V8 with 4 speed. I wonder if they converted an LT95 to part time, or maybe they removed the vacuum selector and keep it permanently locked. Or maybe they cobbled up some other random bits of obscure Roverness with a series Tcase.

You could get an adaptor to mate a Rover V8 to series transmission. I built one many years ago, it's still knocking about and was featured in A LR mag over here not so long ago I'm told.
The oil filter used to get hit by the front diff unless you either fitted a remote filter or a 101 oil pump & filter mount. No front diff would remove that little problem. They would never have been fitted with a V8 for the Belgian Army. It's a bitsa.
