    Great work Ron I really like these 2 pounders and theyre hard to come by.

    Whats the wheel stud arrangement as it looks like 6 stud similar to British trailers?

    I supplied some 'easy clean' wheels to a friend restoring one and I'm sure they were 5 stud Morris wheels. I know they came with solid wheels also.

    Well spotted Carlton. The gun came with no wheels or hubs and I do have several pictures of MK2, 2 pounders on easy clean type wheels. I acquired the remains of a WW2 generator trailer and used the wheels that you see, we adapted the hubs to make the proper quick release mechanism. Again my friend and engineer John spent a multitude of hours on this. They are the same size and style as Dunlop Tilly wheels but are a bit more heavy duty and probably more suited for artillery. The tyres are 6 ply cross ply's and were designed for use on milk floats. Ron
