Thanks for your comments, I suspect it's a copy too.

However, I will do some work to it to deal with the small patches of rust and then re-spray in OD and mark it up. From a distance I suppose it won't matter too much :(

Thanks Chuck. I have now marked it up as a wartime trailer and will keep it until I can find a genuine Willys or Bantam one. Here’s a recent picture after some work I’ve done to it.
