Bedford at SSAFA Car Show

Just about the only commercial vehicle at the SSAFA Car Show at Ewen Fields on 19 Oct 2014 was the 1946 Bedford KD pictured below.
It was said to have been first registered in Midlothian, although the 'UT' in the number plate relates to the Leicester Vehicle Registration Office, the letters for Midlothian being 'SY'. It apparently broke down in Manchester in 1972 and languished in a breaker's yard until 1986, was in pieces when bought by A.Houghton in the late 1990s, and restoration wasn't completed until 2010.
