    Blimey! Doesn't seem long enough though. If it is, I wonder what its worth?

    Duhhh! When I see something on an old airfield with obvious traces of original paint on it, I sometimes get carried away. Okay, so its not a tank transporter. Looks military though.

    Hi Adie and all, the trailer is the base for a 27.5 KVA genni. We had one with 100 Regt LAD REME in the early 80's, a bugger to tow behind a RL Bedford machinery 4 tonner. Every hill in West Germany was a challange, crawling on the up's and pushing on the down's with the inevertable brake fade!!!
