Looks like it. Presumably it has the same 2 1/2 litre engine as the taxicab, as mentioned here - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morris_Commercial_Cars

I don't think it's that big, looks like 8cwt size rather than 1 ton, although it does have five wheel nuts. The picture shows a snub nose, but looks like the later flat nose.

This is the high top version, but it's a flat nose.

The other question is Morris or Morris-Commercial? The car derived vehicles tended to be Morris, the more truckish were Morris-Commercial.

Morris-Commercial 10-12 cwt van, I believe.

Morris-Commercial introduced a 'half ton' van below the 1-Ton van, in competition with the Morris 10cwt van based on the Cowley. More expensive by £25 (£190 and £165) so probably didn't sell well except maybe to the Royal Mail?

Cannot find the exact van's picture only an earlier 1927 version here http://archive.commercialmotor.com/page/10th-may-1927/73

The early Morris-Commercial vans and trucks that were less than 1-ton were the 10-12 cwt and the 12-15cwt, both using a smaller chassis compared with the 1-ton [T-Type].

They were identical other than the engines used; the 10-12 cwt [L-type] used the 11.9hp Morris Cowley engine and the 12-15cwt [LT-Type] the 13.9hp used in the Morris Oxford and the 1-ton [T-Type].

Royal Mail never knowingly overspent, Sunbar, much (eg. the extended Stourton sorting centre).
