Do we have to create a make Bedford Scammell? ..or maybe put Scammell at the end, like for body makes?

They were badged as Bedford-Scammell. IIRC Bedford supplied OS chassis-cabs to Scammell, who fitted fifth-wheel conversions. C’est ŕ toi de décider …

I have an old 'Bedford Maintenance Manual' covering the 4x2 models MW (15 cwt), OX (30 cwt) and OY (3 ton) as well as the 6 ton semi-trailer Bedford-Scammell OCX.

If Vauxhall Motors uses this double name, we should do it likewise.

Whatever you decide, I guess that other one linked above has to be named similarly.

Alex, would I be right in thinking (seeing the mention of MW and OY) that this covers the military GS models? I ask because I think this civilian version was OSS, not OCX, and I don't want the images labelled wrongly.

I found information that production of the 5 ton Bedford-Scammell OSS started in 1945.

Yes, Chris, the book is about the military version. I didn't want to start a confusion, but just refer to the usage of the name.

The military version has the name OXC, not OCX. Sorry about this typo.

Bedford O-type introduced 1939, with limited production due to WWII, resumed production 1945-53.

Bedford-Scammell artics for gross loads of up to 12 tons were listed as factory produced models from 1938.
