It's like when you stay at a movie past the credits and there's a little bonus snippet at the end :)

Bedford MWD
Based on a commercial 2-ton truck, the MWD enter production in 1937. It was slightly modified for military use to increase ground clearance, and was intended to tow a 2-pounder anti-tank gun. Delivery began in 1939, with some 200,000 vehicles having been delivered by the end of the war. Initial versions featured a canvas-covered cab; later versions were wholly enclosed. The truck continued to remain in British service until the 1950s.
The car can carry one driver and one passenger. The MWD burns 2.4 gallons of gasoline per hour at routine usage. A full tank of petrol costs $3. It can ford depths of up to 2' and has a range of 268 miles.
