Thanks for posting this. The Bev was a fairly unsung - and unlamented - workhorse of the '50s and '60s. Noisy, ungainly and slow, it had a certain archaic charm to it. The fact that it used a fixed undercarriage - which can be built more strongly than a retractable undercarriage - allowed it to operate from the roughest unprepared airstrips in the Middle and Far East.
Plans to develop later marks of the aircraft using turboprop engines instead of the WW2 era Bristol Centaurus piston engines never went beyond the drawing board.
The only remaining intact example is on Humberside - see the attachment.
