  1. With the chassis number being between two known contracts, doesn't this give you a start and end date when your Tilly was made, possibly down to a few months?

  5. Major Cecil Vandepeer Clarke MC founder of Lolode:- Clarke moved to Bedford and became director of HP Webb and Co Ltd., a motor manufacturing firm. He registered patents relating to engine design. In 1924 he bought a house in Tavistock Street, Bedford, together with an adjacent commercial garage; here he started his own engineering firm. In his spare time he built his own design of car engine, but he found that it was not commercially viable because other manufacturers could make similar engines more economically. Clarke's brother ran a large farm and Clarke realized that there was a market for trailers of various types. Clarke thought that existing two-wheeled trailers waggled about too much – particularly horse boxes. He established the Low Loading Trailer Company Ltd. (LoLode for short) in Bedford. LoLode produced a wide range of trailers based on Clarke's design for a low-slung chassis and four close-coupled wheels with a stable suspension system. LoLode became known for building caravans to customer requirements. Standard features included Clarke's anti-rolling system with shock absorbers and hydraulic brakes. On-board batteries, water tanks, petrol generators and other internal equipment attracted attention at shows. Clarke's chassis and suspension design allowed passengers travelling in the caravan (which was permitted at that time) at a speed of 40 mph (64 km/h) to pour drinks without spilling them, and some LoLode caravans even featured a gimbal-mounted chemical toilet for use while travelling.

  14. Sorry, no idea. The rivets maybe too distorted to measure but the size of the hole maybe measurable, and give you the size of the rivet. This site should help:- https://www.cnclathing.com/guide/rivet-hole-size-chart-how-to-determine-the-rivet-size-cnclathing
  15. Plenty of copper rivets on ebay, even some imperial sizes.
  16. I'm still convinced that this photo is colourized, but not questioning whether the others are original colour or colourized.
  17. Enlarging the photo of the WAAF driving a tractor pulling a load of 1000lb bombs, and looking at the mudguard (more blue grey than green), it definitely looks colourised, especially as there is a B&W photo.
