The Bedford QLD was the General Service cargo truck version of the QL series of trucks which Bedford Vehicles manufactured for the British Armed Forces during the Second World War. It was an extremely useful vehicle, with a capacity for carrying a driver and 11 passengers and had a payload capacity of 3 tons, so it is not surprising that many passed into civilian use eventually. Here we see it in the colourful green and red livery of Bertram Mills Circus, registered UYP 194 and featuring the troupe�s detailed graphics in bright yellow on the cab doors. The light matt green canopy over the truck is cleverly moulded to create a taut effect on both sides, held down by detailed rope �ties� while the rear is expertly moulded to recreate the canvas folds. Note the tow hook on the rear bumper, all ready to take a trailer.
The newly tooled Showmans Trailer in Bertram Mills Circus livery is decorated to team up with the 76QLD003 Bedford QLD truck. Decorated in the same colours and registration plate but with a grey roof. It also comes with a tow bar enabling it to hook up immediately to the Bedford QLD, all ready to transport whatever equipment/baggage the circus chose.
