The Bedford MK 4-Tonne 4x4 entered service in 1969 and gradually replaced the Bedford RL in British Army service, and along with the later engined MJ model from 1977 onwards, became the most numerous medium truck in British Army service in modern times. Adopted by many other armies around the world and in later civilian ‘after-life’, to say that it’s been everywhere, done everything and remains iconic are all huge understatements!
