C.S. Morris Armored Car Placard.
Morris Motors was one of the most influential and prolific carmakers in Great Britain, and a logical choice for building armored cars.

This vehicle was tested the same year and, in 1937, accepted for service,
Only 99 were made, most were lost during the Dunkirk Evacuation of France. Others were destroyed in North Africa as the armor was far too light for modern warfare.
The CS is most remembered for a scene in the movie "Michael Collins", in which this car, enters a soccer stadium and starts firing at the spectators inside.
Historically speaking, this car was parked outside, while British soldiers, scaled the wall and opened fire when they got inside.
Sign is not complete, there was originally a piece of metal behind the sign but that's long gone.
