I have this photo of an Army lorry (still not sure what type). it has WD on the body but on the bonnet it looks like NACB. Can anyone shed any light on what that might stand for.

Thanks

NACB = Navy & Army Canteen Board

I think that the Naval Canteens joined the Army Canteen Committee to form the NACB in 1917, but I don't have an exact date

Looks like a 3 ton Subsidy A type - possibly a Maudsley?

Navy and Army Canteen Board. Thanks. i wouyld nto have worked it out.

It does indeed look similar to a Maudslay but there are a number of differences to the subsidy lorry. it could be an earlier model perhaps. I will see if i can find one.

Thanks

In the book 'Canteens in the British Army' (part of which is to be seen here http://books.google....n board&f=false)

p.51 suggests that the NACB was formed in June 1917, which may help to date your first photo in post No.1
