The Lorry 3 Ton Command Low Power was a 60-cwt Canadian Military Pattern (CMP) truck built during the Second World War. Used by RC Sigs at Corps and Div HQs to carry low power wireless equipment for staff communication with flanking Corps and Divs (paralelling high power communication) but also working forward for commanders for example: CREME to LIght Aid Detacments (LADs).
The inside was divided into two compartments, one for staff officers (seats 5) and the other for crew (seats 3). The vehicle could also be used as a Signals Office when the penthouse could be set up.
Equipment during the Second World War included one Wireless Set No. 19, one Wireless Set No. 52, batteries and a 1260 watt battery charging set.
