Morrison Electricar DHJ 43 is preserved by Whife and Sloper Dairies and attends a number of historic vehicle rallies, as well as occasionally deputising on rounds. Here, it is seen at the Castlepoint Transport Museum open day on 13th October 2002. It was originally built as a bread van, being converted in 1960. Photo by Richard Haughey.

Taylor's VAN 561, pictured at Five Oaks near Billingshurst, is understood to be a Morrison. Its registration indicates that it dates from 1961. Taylor's operations were taken over by Sussex Dairies, then by Unigate and finally Dairy Crest before the depot closed in 2002. Photo by Dave Fane.
