Question , Bomb trolly identification ??

Recommended Posts

Some expert help required here please , my son and I stumbled across this trolly in the undergrowth whilst recovering a minibus for a friend  last week . It now sits as more 'yard art ' at home as a little project for the junior dept.

question please , what is it , who made it , what did it carry and what towed it ??

thanks for reading....

It looks like an ex RAF trailer for airfield use only, that carried some sort of ground support equipment, .. it appears to be on very light weight wheels/tyres so it wouldn't carry much weight, ..when the drawbar is raised up it applies the parking brakes

....probably it was something like this pic I found of an airfield cargo handling trailer on similar wheels and drawbar in raised parked position ..top left of pic

Nick,

You got in first but my comment was to be that its too lightweight to be a bomb trailer.

Plus the straps to hold cases in place, might indicate a luggage trolly
