Wartime British Trailers


Recommended Posts

Working on our 1942 Commer 30 cwt this morning and she is fitted with a pretty hefty wartime towbar/hook.

It made me start wondering what type of trailer she may have towed when or if the need arised.

Anyone have any photos of British trucks with trailers?

I have seen the 20cwt GS trailer before and also the 20cwt water bowser, when Googled they both come up on the forum!!

I think the reason my Commer has a shortened body is to enable access to the tow bar which is on the rear cross member. I will try to get some pics when I next go down the yard.
