    Just my 2 penneth worth. The rear wheel with holes in it is Dennis. Same as fitted to their trailer pumps. The front wheels are simply 23 inch rim Sankey wheels, as fitted to a lot of vintage lorrys. 33x5's as you note (33 (OD) - (2x5 (height) = 23 rim) And they are 8 stud, not 6. There is an adaptor between the 6 stud hub, and 8 stud wheel. If it were mine, Id put the adaptor between the wheel and the hub, not in front of the adaptor. It would look more accurate in wheel terms, but it would bring them further out, may have wing issues.

    Aerodrome Smokescreen Generator Trailers

    Try nearly 20years later!. I suspect (no evidence to back my suspicions) that the trailers they had were sourced from Dave Sanders up the road.

    From memory they were extended at the back by a fair bit. Very crude

    The plant hire firm on the Colomendy Industrial estate in Denbigh converted them and sold them on to Farmers. I used to work next door on my holidays while I was a student. There were a number of different styles, but all 3 wheel and sprung

    WW1 Thornycroft restoration

    Tigerseal is simply a black polyurethane sealer that dries to look like black rubber. The wide boys use it to glue their wide boy body kits on their wannabe hot hatches. And it takes all paint 11quid a tube at your local halfrauds

    id use 'Tigerseal'. And put a thumbsworth smeared over the inside while i was at it too. No problem with painting Tigerseal. Its often used in austin 7 circles as a gasket goo.

    WW1 Thornycroft restoration

    Ive just bought some Lucas medallions for the lamps on my Austin 7. Looks like you just need to araldite one of suitable size on your post and it will be indistinguishable from a pukka one https://www.vintagecarparts.co.uk/products/516luc-lucas-lamp-badge-medallion you also do not need lamps of any sort to be legal, provided you do not take it out in the hours of darkness

    WW1 exhibits /events for 2018

    I attended the Tracks to the Trenches event the weekend before last with the Marshall. Here are a couple of pictures of the road vehicles. Ive robbed them off The Manchester Regiment''s facebook page https://www.facebook.com/groups/232584754465/about/ , but I actually took the first pic so I dont suppose they will mind if I repost here.

    Fowler Traction Engines WW1

    Black, picked out in Amber and lined in Red and Yellow is standard Fowler livery of the period To be fair you can see in some photos of WD Fowlers that this is the livery that they left the makers in. As this These are a batch supplied to the Ministry of Munitions. Class TE2 Haulage and Winding engines. Essentially a heavy artillery tractor. I suspect your currently looking at the info for one of the same or later batches. For info, a large order of identical and similar engines was supplied via Vickers to the Tsarist Russians during the Great War and I can share some photos of these in use if it is of interest. To this day the surviving ex MoM engines are termed ''Russian Fowlers''. You will find the Russian order specification notes a Khaki green finish (to match a sample of cloth sent in). 1 coat of grey, 1 coat of Khaki.
