Maybe it is a stupid question but:

The name of these trailers are Converto Trailer, Dump, 2 Wheel, 1/2 Ton Airborne.

I am from Holland (the Nijmegen area) and the 307th engineers of the 82nd Airborne div where here.
But i have never seen a picture of these trailers over here.

The question is:
Are there any pictures of the airborne engineers useing them here in Holland?

Best regards
Robert

Rob82nd; Are there any pictures of the airborne engineers useing them here in Holland?
I have been trying to find photos of the Convertos in the field for years and these are the only ones I have come across. Would love for people that find photos to send them to me as I can add them to the webpage.
