The Wembley Sports is a Bakelite camera made in England by Truvox, introduced in 1950. It takes eight 6x9cm images on 120 film. The lens screws into the body when not in use, and is extended for picture taking, with four click stops for focus zones.

The Arti-Six is a very similar camera, as is the Grand Manitou - a French-labelled version.
