This type of vehicle was new to the post war Auxiliary Fire Service for use with the mobile fire columns of the 1950s and 1960s, and was similar to the military version, which was designated 'Tractor, 3 ton, GS, Recovery, Light, 4x4, Bedford, RL'. Fitted with a Turner horizontal drum winch of 7 tons pull with 260ft of rope, and a 3 ton jib. They have selectable 2/4 wheel drive, and are powered by a Bedford 300 (5 litre) straight six cylinder petrol engine.
This one went from AFS to Birmingham Fire and Ambulance Service.
