Default Moffat Virtue question

We know that Kelly & Lewis provided Moffat Virtue with rebadged engines from 1931. In 1938 the side-valve V3 was introduced. It is believed to have been made by the Rosebery Engine Works.

The poor quality photo below shows a fairly rare 1.5hp, MV-badged engine. I donít recall seeing another brand of engine that looks like it. Where does it fit in, and who made it? The fuel tank on this one is not original. It should be oval section.
