 Morris WEK80 4 ton Stores Truck used for light cabling work as denoted by the hand operated winch on the body floor. Most interesting are the cab interior views showing the white direction indicator switch beside the windscreen, the light switch on the steering column and the very basic instrumentation.  The final shot in the set is a fascinating internal view of the Wembley Site showing brand new JU250 vans and war surplus Bedfords; an MW lorry and a QL tanker.
