Paul, nice to see a an old Lincolnshire bedford, have been to a few jobs over the years where this R.T turned up. Have you any other Lincolnshire pictures I am trying to find a picture of an old "R" reg Bedford we had at Saxilby (A7) in the late 70, s and 80, s.

I don't have a pic of the old Bedford, but for others to look through their archives the one referred to is TTL 343 R

Alan - I couldn't think of any other reason to have it there, either.

Perhaps it was just a low-cost option the brigade could not resist - or maybe the appliance body was just a standard removal van box with some minor modifications, such as building in the lockers and side doors... a much cheaper solution than a true custom built job!

The dual role as an R&R unit is an interesting hypothesis, though. Is it so obvious that it could be the real answer?
