The id plate would indicate an Australian product. As such could it have  be made as a trailer for Australian military use within a base etc.. Just because it does not fit the pattern of a UK military made item, or American, does not mean it was not in military use. Australians were very good at modifying or building up equipment for their domestic needs, using the resources they had of the time. It could also be produced for a commercial use, and some were sold to a military base.

I was refering to the original Ford TT as probably not Military, not what the trailer which was made later on from the parts was used for

The point you made is taken. I have been  thinking of possable military uses for for a light trailer about a base. Could even be something less dramatic like transfering rubish tins. As for the time period , I would say pre WW11, and its construction could well coincide with periods of economic constrant and the use of locally build products.
