The Sentinel lorry was a very well engineered vehicle with an unconventional horizontal engine mounted in an underslung position behind the cab produced in four-wheeled and six-wheeler form and when introduced was ahead of its time with a stylish all-steel sliding door cab.

These lorries were very popular with breweries because with no engine intrusion in the cab three men could be accommodated but this example was employed in the delivery of cooking stoves and heaters made by Flavel of Leamington Spa and is seen here passing through a typical English landscape in pre-motorway days.

In a nine year production run only 650 DV44s were produced so the Sentinel was a rare sight indeed, but undoubtedly a pleasurable one with arguably one of the best looking cabs ever to grace the humble lorry.

    There is always a bus following in your images – when the main roads always had a service. Not so now!

  • Yeah, I love my buses and there did seem to be more of them around in those days.

    Lovely image, love the little boy looking at the passing lorry – just as we all did at that age :)

  • Thanks Aqqpup, it’s supposed to be a little girl, are you getting old or is it me!

    Probably both, given the rough date children dressed the same and the dress does look a bit like short trousers (at least to me)
    Then again it could just be my eyesight
