A Maudslay Mogul 6 ton dropside lorry used by the Supplies Division.  When this vehicle was new, the Maudslay Company had already been taken over by AEC, but the cab style is totally Maudslay, though it might conceivably been fitted with an AEC engine.  The small M motif at the foot of the radiator covers an aperture for the starting handle, though it would be a brave man who tried to start a diesel engine by hand.
