    88 visitors, and no one answer, its big mystery?

    Please Who know British army field kitchen trailer war time era?

    Think on this picture , trailer have wheels from Humber heavy tilly or Humber armoured car,

    No mud guards, typical for small "airborne" trailers,

    O.K. maybe late know what is it?

    looking at a photo i have it looks almost identical to a german field kitchen. Apart from the wheels. The originals were like cart wheels. It may be that the original wheels broke so they fixed it up with british ones

    The Polish Army whilst in the UK appear to have made afew for their own use.

    They were probably use to using them back home.
