Help - need photos of British Airborne Trailer Type nr 2.

Recommended Posts

I need some pics of the British late-WW2 10-cwt (Airborne) Lightweight Trailer Nr 2 in wartime action.

The trailer with the profiles on the outside of the metal body, not the earlier and more well-known Airborne trailer we see in Normandy and Arnhem.

If anyone has such photos or links then pls respond.

I've looked for WWII photos of the No2 Airborne trailer when I had one as part of the collection, but I never managed to find any.


The nearest is this newspaper clip gleaned from somewhere on the internet and shows a Korean War photo of one in use:

I thought this could be one but it might be a gs trailer? I found the pic on war relics forum








Agree with you, not a Lightweight No2. They are longer and have noticeably more overhang behind axle

Thanks for the Korean War photo. I think this must be the only one in existence. Thought I had seen one of a Nr 2 in service with British in Palestine in late 40's but have trawled the web without success. Something will turn up one day.
