Our latest introduction on the Bedford QLD is as used by the Royal Army Service Corps with the Eighth Army, which in turn was a field army deployed in the North African and Italian campaigns of World War II. The QLD was the general service cargo truck, built by Bedford between 1941 and 1945 specifically for military use and able to carry 12 persons including the driver. Our model is appropriately decorated in a desert scheme of sandy yellow, even down to the bumpers and wheels, with darker beige tilt behind the cab. It also wears the RAF roundel on the cabin roof. Its military lettering is printed in white on both cab doors and across the back of the vehicle, supplemented by the regimental insignia on the front nearside wing and the rear.
The RASC was the unit responsible for supplying the British Army with all their provisions with the exclusion of armaments, so our truck would have been driving around delivering supplies of all kinds to the troops in the field.
