WW2 British/Canadian rare scrap yard haul

Recommended Posts

With the post war WD reg you may be able to find the wartime number and details from the RLC museum.

 

Similarly, FMW may be able to find you the contract card.

 

The wartime number is there, L1711494

To be really precise, that wartime number is it second number as it comes from a group of numbers allocated to Rebuilt vehicles. Given that the contract number is V4924, it would have originally been issued with a number from the group L559110 to 562075 allocated to that contract. This means that it has gone through a rebuild and given a new identity, the original number will not be on the Key Card.

This is amazing, some sort of compressor/welding engineers trailer ? a time capsule, all complete inside, very restorable.

Just found some interesting info, regarding the Bedord QLT I have.

 

WD no ooyy45 3/07/42, chassis no 13914, L1711494, contract V4924, disposed at Ashchurch July 1961

stored at Ruddington

 

Interesting to see the CES crate for this vehicle in the photos of the bits & pieces:

Is all the equipment for the vehicle still in there?

That is a Servicing trailer, it has the compressor and air operated lubricating equipment, you can see the hose reels for oil and grease guns. IIRC there was a washing plant on wheels in the front of the body and a ramp to offload it.

Should go with the QLT really?

 

Well done for not only putting in the effort to save this lot but on finding homes for it all so quickly!

All the vehicles & trailers have now been sold. Both the Bedford QLR & QLT will be fully restored. Thanks for all your interest.

Thanks for all your kind comments, the box will be going with the QLT. One day hopefully 3 more QLs & a WOT 6 will take to the road. The QLR & QLT have been sold to a QL owner, who already has a fully restored QLD.

 

Cheers

Thanks but I'm sure there's a lot more worthy candidates than me. Hopefully we'll see a few more QLs on the road. What does surprise me is the lack of MVT interest !!

I see a picture of a lubrication trailer.Workshop Servicing No3

Do you still have it around or have contact with new owner?

I have one the same here in New Zealand but it's missing a lot of the internals like pipework, compressor, tank and engine.

I would like to see lots of photos of the interior so I can make out what all the parts are, what type of engine runs what type of compressor , how the pipework was fitted and terminated.

My trailer had one hose rack, some grease pots, a lubrication chart file holder and a handle that allows operator to move trailer by hand but very little left of internal details
