Corgi CC60309 British RAF Bedford QL Supply Truck - RAF 2nd Tactical Air Force, 84 Group, Gold Beach, Normandy, 1944 (1:50 Scale) "After [El] Alamein, we never had a defeat."
- British Prime Minister Winston Churchill

The Bedford QLD lorry was the most common British-made 4x4 truck produced, with over 52,000 supplied to the British Forces between 1941 and 1945. Many of these later continued in service with the British Army in Cyprus, Korea and Malaya. The first Bedford QL trucks rolled off the assembly line at Vauxhall’s Luton factory early in 1941. They were powered by the reliable GM 3 ½-litre six-cylinder petrol engine.

Pictured here is a 1:50 scale QL supply truck pressed into service by the RAF's 2nd Tactical Air Force, 84 Group,then operating out of Gold Beach, Normandy, during June 1944. Now in stock!
