fire extinguisher in a bedford MW

Below two pictures of the battery box in my late bedford MW at which the fire extinguisher is mounted.




I also found some comparable pictures on the Forum at which the holes for the fire extinguisher are clearly visible (Rampant Rivets restoration).

And a picture of Maurice his bedford if I remember correctly.

I assume this is no coincidence! Can anyone confirm this is the correct location for the fire extinguisher since I mostly see them mounted on the floor, especially at early bedfords. There are no similar holes in the metal floor plate of my late bedford MW.

The battery box is an inheretance from the O series cabs , and they have the extinguisher mounted on the box .

I have seen early MW`s pictures with the wing nuts on the sides instead of on the front and rear for the top lid , does anybody know till when this was done?
