I do not claim to be a truck expert, but could it relate to a Marmon truck ? Check it out on the net .

Not sure but Marmon trucks when they were sold her a few years back were called Max Marmon. Cany recall what the badge looke like.
Another one I can think of although would be a lot older would be Mammoth Major.
try to google it,see what comes up.I will do the same.
cheers

Hi Scummy thanks for your input. Apparently the guy involved with bringing the Marmon's to Australia his name was Max cant recall his sir name though. Found that info on google last night.
Not over sure wether the badge is from one though. As photos looked at only had the one M on the grille badge.
cheers
Kerry

It is from a Commer truck. A Commer Fire Engine in fact. A 1964 Commer CAH741 Fire Engine.
