Bedford?? HVX plate = late 39/early 40. WW2 footage for blackout paint on body edges.

Bedford-Scammell OSS seems to be 1945+ from our collection which is too late for plate (and probably for blackout paint by that stage of WW2??). Any advance on just Bedford O??

There were a number of innovations in 1938. The first Bedford-Scammell artics for gross loads of up to 12 tons were listed as factory produced models and a new 72 bhp 3.5 litre petrol engine announced.

From "An History Of Road Transport" By Charles Walker via Google books.

Bedford-Scammell coupling looks to be introduced pre-WWII as above
