Trailer possible training aid identification

Recommended Posts

Seen this over the Hogmore enclosure at the back of the Bordon REME camp. Anyone know what it could be. I think that the body on its side sat onto of the trailer. Not sure the vintage of the trailer by its wheels, could be commercial not military. The top on its side has a turret type base inside with wiring on drums and electrics. Need closer examination. My thoughts that it could be radar or radio or it could be tank training. Note it has a ladder at the side. What do you think. Any ex REME remember it. Now rusting  on its side. Need to know before someone in local council gets it scrapped.

To add I have been told it’s a 1950s trailer towed radar

One of the numerous REME recovery training aids that used to be all over the site, everything from Tanks submerged in the swamps to overturned trucks

The step frame chassis points to it being an AA Radar trailer, click on link and scroll down for a pic of what it looked like.., alas its only scrap value now
