The Bedford QL was the First World War II military truck which Bedford built against a War Office specification for a 3 ton 4 x 4 general service vehicle. The QLR variant was modified specifically for Signals operations and contained electrical equipment, radio suppression, fitment of a 660 watt auxiliary generator and two 16 gallon fuel tanks, amongst a host of other essentials. There was also provision for aerial masts and other equipment.
During World War II, 8 Corps played a part in the battle for North West Europe, including the Battle of Normandy and Operation Market Garden and for its third campaign outing, our miniature Bedford QLR is decorated in the dark brown and grey black camouflage scheme with lighter brown canvas section and dark brown interior, as it might have been deployed in the region. Military lettering L559841 is printed on the cab doors and the rear.
