Another float of the same design, GMV 414B was also registered in London, this time in 1964. I have lost the credit for this picture, although I expect it was from the Milko group; please let me know if it's yours!

Braziers DME 683A, another ex-Unigate float, is an example with no headlight. Milk floats with A-suffix registrations are few and far between. Photo by Dave Fane.
