A Morris FGK100 4 ton Stores Lorry fitted a six cylinder diesel engine and a TICO hydraulic crane.  These Tico cranes were a simplified version of the Hiab hydraulic lorry loader and were purchased for use when loads only needed to be moved close to the vehicle sides and not lifted into areas of difficult access.  The rear indicators look very vulnerable to damage being placed high up on the tailboard mountings.
