Coincidentally it looks to be the sort of flatbed trailer seen in the current threads in "British vehicles" being towed by RAF Fordson Tructors through the streets of Liverpool loaded with P38 Lightnings

A friend of mine had one of these on his farm; it was too heavy (it had a thick Kerouin hard wood deck to add extra weight) to be of much use in the days of small bales but now would be good for big bales which are much more densely packed. It was also long and I considered shortening it. The tyres were a problem size as I remember. I am sure it had a plate on it which related to R.A.F. heritage I didn't think it was as old as WW2. I am fairly sure it went to China but it might still be there out of sight.
