Rhyl makes a great deal of sense as the reg as LFF xxx  that it was given in 1980 by the DVLA suggests the regional theme was Wales ( "FF" was Merionethshire until 1974)

No. As Dollar Bill stated in your other thread, Merioneth only got to HFF by 1964.
Undoubtedly a more recent issue, probably after number sold off.

So do you think that this vehicle could have had a different registration from 1956 that was sold and then reregistered in 1980 as LFF Xxx?    DVLA say first registration is July 1980

There is a date if you can search for it, on which the UK use of "trade plates" by commercial organizations was tightened up considerably. A number of bigger country estates, mining companies and garages had vehicles which seldom appeared on the public highway. These could be kept exempt from road tax .But when they did need to travel on the road system  it was common for the estate to have trade plates for the short trip it might make. A vehicle originally issued by Government to be used by consular staff on some commonwealth Island territories might have no UK number until it returned . Some Islands did have a registration  system, but the number applied to any vehicle was issued annually. Or as in Switzerland the plate number for any vehicle is issued to the owner not specifically to the vehicle. Any number of reasons a Land-Rover  might never have been registered here.
