as far as I know, this is more likely an engineer corps trailer... nothing to do with UK Royal Army... they had their own trailers (no dump anyway)

thank you, added, to my list as well... it was not previously listed... and you'll have to use, my guess, the usual 319 shade... the Batisti's one (my suggestion)

Thought I had sent this in before but did not see it on your list.

0877050
Cont. No. W11-114ENG (MSP366)
Dated 11-1-44

Location USA/WA
Owner: Peter L.

And someone had asked before about what spring to use for the tailgate lock mechanism, a Kenworth Brake spring works great. It is the same length as the original and about 2 to 3 times as heavy.
