In Service - about the early 1970s through to about the mid 90s

The Bedford Pantechnicon (or Furniture Van) was used by the Army, Air Force (as here) and Royal Navy to move servicemen's and servicewomen's furniture from one married quarters to another and also to move furniture from one barrack block to another, as well as moving desks and other items from one office to another.

The exact dates of its service-life are unclear but believed to be from about the early 1970s through to about the mid 1990s. These vehicles were also used by removal companies for a number of years, and some with different bodywork without the ribs on the body sides, and some with rounded front corners to the body.
