  1. The photographs above are of Andrew Honychurch's Humber Heavy Utity. Same one as for sale on Milweb.
  2. As you say Ian, there appear to be two securing straps/brackets holding the rubber hose to the wooden floatation block. The block is clearly shaped to take the hose and the connection on top of the pierced filter canister.. The thick leather strap is for securing the block to the trailer when not in use. I can't find any clearer pictures.

  4. I'm looking for information about General Service cargo bodies used on British 3 Ton lorries during WW2. I've been told that many of the British 3 Ton lorries were fitted with a common General Service cargo carrying body. Earlier ones were mostly wooden sided but switching to all steel construction for mid/later war. Does anyone have Illustrated Parts Lists or Parts Catalogues that cover this common GS body design? Like the attached photographs. Many thanks, Alan
  5. Many thanks. Great photos of the internal components of the strainer. It is now clear how it all fits together.
  6. The same strainer appears to have been in service for many years. On the 80 Gallon 10cwt trailer and at least one First World War type.
  7. Even though the trailer chassis and wheels are different, the straining, pumping and filtration equipment on the Wartime and post-War photographs look very similar to me.
  8. Here is a close-up of the strainer in the trailer image.
  9. Really interested in this post as I will have to make Metafilters for a 180 Gallon Water Bowser Trailer restoration. I also have a copy of the Metafilter Type 2 booklet which I am going to use as the plans/pattern. Alan
  10. Nick, Simon King has been away on the XXX Corps trip in the Netherlands. I'm sure that when he gets back he will respond to you. Alan
  11. Being towed - looks like an ex-British Army 2 Ton office trailer converted as living accommodation.
  12. Thanks Wally. The mystery of B269 solved.
  13. That's great research Wally, I feel a book or small pamphlet needs to be published on what has been uncovered. I have a vehicle that had a post-war overhaul at B269. Any information on B269? Many thanks, Alan
  14. Andrew, A great project for somebody. I have my own HU project on the go at the moment and wish the buyer all the best. Alan
