Hi all. I picked up this airborne trailer this week. It’s missing the data plate, so I started removing paint to see if I could find its X number but I found what appears to be 533RN painted on both front lower sections. I’m assuming Royal Navy, but on an airborne trailer?? Any ideas? Thanks. Matt

Post-war registration number for an RN-owned trailer.  May well have been issued to an RM commando.  Many RM vehicles had RN registrations.  In fact, I think I have seen a picture in a book somewhere of a similar trailer being towed behind a Series 1 Land Rover with RN markings.

I saw this briefly come up on ebay, if I hadn't just picked up  my mortar trailer I would have snapped it up!

Looks to be in reasonable condition and if I remember correctly, the tail end/board had been cut to make it open, but it was with it..

Nice trailer..
