Bedford+"Queen Mary" trailer

Hello everybody,
Maybe my question is a little off board, but as I cannot find what I want on the net, I would like to ask if there is anybody here, who could help me with a photo of the RAF Bedford tractor+Queen Mary trailer. How long was this combination?
Tia,
paul peters

Paul,

In a Dutch book I only found the length of the trailer given as 15.66 m.
