    I'm working on a model of a Bedford QLR and plan to mark it up from 2nd Canadian Armoured Brigade spring of 1944. I have read in "British Military Markings 1939-1945" that in late 1943 they started to use red for the band color for HQ,Army, Brigade etc. I have this set from Archer Transfers and they have it as white. I was wondering if this is a case were the Canadians didn't conform to the standard, similar to how they would sometimes paint their recognition stars.

    In my book "The Canadian Soldier", it shows the Red 50 on the White/Blue but without the usual Brigade white bar below for the 2nd Armd Bde.

    Have you a photo of a QLR in service with a Canadian unit as they mostly used CMP 3 Ton trucks for the heavier signals bodies? They did use some QL's with the J145 Operations body in the HAA Regiments and also some QLT's in the RCASC but I haven't seen a QLR in Canadian service. I would be interested in any info you have on them being used.

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers,
