Oxford Diecast Bedford QLD Wiltshire Fire Brigade

Oxford Diecast Bedford QLD Wiltshire Fire Brigade

Product Code: 76QLD006


After the end of World War II, many fire brigades inherited former military and National Fire Service Bedford QL 4x4 lorries that were converted into front line water tender fire engines. They were used especially in rural areas. They were fitted with a 400 gallon water tank and light portable pump. This Wiltshire Fire Brigade vehicle was one such example. When replaced by a more up to date fire engine, it was used as a general purpose lorry and painted green to match the Brigade’s other non-operational ancillary vehicles. The canvas cover and framework were easily removed, turning the vehicle into a lorry when required.

 Our model, registered GYR 811, is decorated in dark green with black chassis and black interior. It also features a rolled up beige canvas canopy cleverly housed behind the front number plate.  The Wiltshire Fire Brigade lettering is printed in yellow on the doors of the open backed truck with their colourful crest below. Additional details on our Bedford QLD include a separate roof hatch, roof spotlight and a separate front registration plate. Note too, a tow hook on the back and the spare wheel positioned between the cabin and the rear section.
