Default Scammell TRMU detail question

Hi all,
I have this picture from long times and at last I've started to build model of this particular tank transporter:

Looks like early production vehicle, if judging from the marker lights and offside trafficator. However, there is a strange detail I didn't spot before, this one:

No such curved corners on other TRMU outfits, I've browsed all period pictures I have and watched again all footages and TRMU-20 and -30 parts of the REME educational film "Recovery Vehicles". All have square corners there. The same in the factory plans saved by chance from the Leyland holocaust in the early 60s.
Any info on these curved corners will be appreciated.
