    Exciting news!

    A friend has discovered an April 1949 trailer manual and is the First Edition, War Office Code 5460. It answers lots of questions such as what fits in the brackets inside the trailer.....

    He is going to get it reprinted and I will help sell copies for him. Once it is done, I will let everyone know. He also has the diagram number for the wiring harness.



    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi there, I haven't posted anything for a while but I would also like a copy if possible. I have quite a large file including pictures of rare types of airborne trailers that most people will never have seen, In addition I own the following:- 10cwt No2 Mk1 GS, 100 Gal water Bowser, Compressor, Field Kitchen, 5Kw Generator, 6Kw Generator, Murex Welder, Liner Saw bench and will be collecting the Mech Repair Trailer soon. So if I can be of any help please do not hesitate to contact me.

    Hi Ade, I just joined this forum after seaching for images of military trailer wheels on Google. I was doing this because I've had a wheel stolen from my trailer, which looks very much like yours. Mine was given me by a friend of my wive's years ago, I didn't have a clue what it was, someone had cobbled a wooden body on the chassis which was very rotten. I built a box body out of 2" angle and galv sheet, which looks incredibly like your standard body. I think my trailer was originally a bowser judging by some of the curves on the chassis. You may think differently, I'd be interested to know. Anyway, mine is now unusable until I can find a new wheel, it's got the split rims on it, not like your spoked type. Do you know of anyone with any wheels to fit? I'd be grateful if you'd let me know. I don't think I live far from you either,I'm in Long Eaton. Cheers, Steve.

    Hi Steve, welcome to the forum! Nice to meet another local lad

    I will ask a friend who lives near Ripley if he has any.

    Do you have any pics of your trailer? How many studs to the wheels?

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Ade, that was a quick response! Some pics here if I've done it right. If anybody knows where I can get a new wheel like the one pictured I'd be eternally grateful. It won't be going far until I do.
    And one of my chicken shed.
