1954 promotional text:

The 1-ton cargo truck is one of the most important of all Army vehicles. It is invaluable for transport duties of many kinds, and although its name implies that it is primarily intended for carrying goods, it can be used in certain circumastances as a light personnel carrier. Thus there is almost no limit to the ways in which the Dinky Toys model can be used in army play schemes, and it is indeed a noteworthy addition to the mechanised army fleet.
