Recently purchased an ex NZ Army Mortar Platoon Trailer. Check out some of the resto pictures at www.thegarrison.webs.com
I can also post pics here if anyone is interested.

Interesting trailer. You did a nice job on it. Looks new.
The trailer looks modern. What year is it?
The hitch doesn't look original. Looks as if it originally had a lunette.
Do you have any further information on the trailer?

Hi guys. The trailer was purpose built in 1991 for the NZ Army. It did have a lunette to begin with but the Army modified them at a later date with the standard hitch. I do not know how many of them were ordered as yet, but do know this one and one other are in civie hands now.
It has to be one of the easiest restorations i have done  :D.

Thanks Scott. Have been working on it for a few months now. There will be a lot more added when summer rolls around again.
