the older one with 6 stud wheels is a 7.5 ton chassis, the other with 8 stud wheels is over the 7.5 ton up to 14 ton where 10 stud wheels start. looking at the picture I would guess she's 10 ton.

RYC470F is I believe a Bedford TJ4L if that is of any help. It was based at Somerton from new in 1968 until early 1981 when I think it became a reserve and finally withdrawn in 1982.

997 NUO is a Bedford J2/HCB. Several of these smaller Bedford chassis were manufactured. Anglesey Fire Department had one at Holyhead designated as a HrT. NEY 326 was later allocated to Rhosneigr in the early 1970's when the town started a fire team. On transferral to Gwynedd in 1974 she was further reallocated to Dolgellau and ended her days at Wylfa Nuclear power station on Anglesey. Located in 1995 at a garage in Amlwch, she has since been scrapped and the registration plate transferred onto another vehicle.
