When WWII broke out the British War Office contracted Bedford to produce a 3 ton 4X4
general service truck. In February 1940 the prototype of the QL series was ready with full
production beginning in March 1940 at their Vauxhall factory in Luton. As the war
progressed there was a need for various types of 3 ton trucks. Bedford devised trucks for
troop carrying, fire tenders, communications, tankers, Bofors gun tractor and several others
applications. Between 1940 and 1945 there were approximately 52,250 QL trucks produced.
The Bedford QLD was the general service variant in the QL series of vehicles. The QLD
was the most common British-made 4X4 and was produced until 1945. The QLD was a vital
method of carrying fuel, artillery, ammunition, supplies and food to troops on the move.
Besides being a general service vehicle the QLD was produced as a mobile canteen,
mobile kitchen, observation tower, dump truck. These trucks or lorries were used
extensively by the British forces in Europe and performed very well in the North African
