Always looking to fill gaps in my knowledge.  There is a trailer adverstised on Milweb as RAF Taskers Aircraft Recovery Trailer didn't mean much to me so I did a bit of googling.  Only real links I could find were to Taskers producing the Queen Mary Trailer in WWII, but the add says this is a Post War trailer, is this just a late version of a Queen Mary (the name does at least ring some bells), or did Taskers manufacturer a newer version after the war.

 

Sadly for the seller I'm not looking to buy, although combined with an example of the same type of Bedford in the pictures I think it would make a great exhibit for shows.  It would be nice tolerant more around this company and the trailers.

Cheers,

Julian

It is indeed a postwar version of the classic Queen Mary- nicknamed a Queen Elizabeth, and normally seen behind the Leyland Mastiff. Other tractors were available.

Apologies for the late reply, been off line for a few days.  Thanks for the information that's certainly helped fill in some gaps 🙂
