    Td5 110 towing assembly: which type?

    My ex RAF td5 110 is missing the height adjustable plate and tow hook. I am trying to work which one it is, I do not think it is an actual Landrover one or is it LR007221? Any guesses please? I presume the actual towing attachment would have been a NATO hitch? Thanks
