Looks like its from Glover, Webb and Liversidge who were also solicitors and did prog rock in their spare time.

I’m afraid I have to contradict your suggestion. At the time when I worked at Glover Webb there was no sign of the “prog rock” (whatever that is), perhaps it was Liversidge what done it. Maybe also the solicitoring bit as well.

One of their dustcarts featured in these annals a week or two back, this looks different.

It may be their “Musketeer” model, however. http://www.classicrefusetrucks.com/albums/GL/GL02.html

I was thinking more of the G.W & L Loadmaster

Or continuing the band theme maybe an Eagle Crushload.
Could this be Wandsworth-

Yes =Another Prog Rock Band related to 'Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe' :)

Anyway away from the Monty Pythonesque and back to the (com)pressing isssues of bin lorry identification.
I really do think this is one of the Ford D Eagle Crushloads supplied to Wandsworth especially as film location is Wandsworth-

No objections to the Eagle. After examining all the angles, we do seem to have landed.

Rock music has never been on any horizon I have had the opportunity or desire to explore. There has never been enough time to listen to all the available jazz and lighter classical without opening up a new genre, and although I might indulge in the occasional leg pull about my lack of knowledge of popular beat combos, I do tend to inhabit a parallel electric guitar free universe. Had it been possible to plug an MP3 player loaded with music into the Radiomobile in my Hillman Hunters I could have used the interminable drives up and down the GB motorway system to learn a bit more. As it was, Radio 4, and to a lesser extent Radio 3 informed my input buffer, and acoustically recorded jazz my relaxed hours. And, I'm going to say, they still do, plus Classic fm and Radio Dismuke, of Fort Worth, Texas.
