I noticed the R35 that was sold to ARC Whitwick quarry in the early 80's
I worked on that truck up until the early 90's alongside another 4 R35's at ARC Whitwick.
All 5 were scrapped around 92 if I remember correct

My father-in-law was Derek Rust. I am married to his son Philip, and when he saw the photo of his dad driving the Bedford lorry in the Northampton Carnival, he worked out that the photo must be from around 1972. Apparently Philip was a passenger in the lorry as well as his mother Audrey Rust (known as Betty). For those who knew Derek, they would probably know that he drove the lorry in the carnival for many years, and Philip accompanied him for a few years from about the age of 7.
