    Hello guys

    I need your help with this badge. It was found in a field near Dunkirk. Some khaki paint is left on it.

    It must be from a Bedford truck or other vehicle. Does anybody knows where this badge was put on?
    Maybe with a picture that shows it?
    Is it specific to one type of Bedford truck or vehicle? Which one if so?

    Thanks for your help. I'm glad I found this one.

    It's not familiar to me from the exterior of any Bedford of the period, whether civilian or military and I can't think of a place where it could have been fitted. Could it be part of the instrument panel of a civilian impressed coach or something similar ?

    Good Call, Owen. Unfortunately those pickclick entries continue googling long after the auctions have expired.

    Here's what the complete lamp looks like. All we have to do now is find which model !

    Oddly, also in Australia.
