Hi Henning,

thank You very much for ID the Borgward truck. I thought this pic could help to ID the truck of June.

Greetings

Bert

On sale at e-bay:
Seller says this vehicle is a Tatra, but I very much doubt it. Look British to me. Any suggestions?
Thanks
Kees

Hi Kees:

I couldn't get the photos to load on the attachments, but your photo shows a Skoda 6SD so at least the seller got the country of origin correct.

Hej Henning:

Yes, steering on the right. As far as I can tell all Czech trucks and most passenger cars had RHD before the war.
Thanks for the other photos.

The seller on eBay called this vehicle an Erhardt Panzerwagen - I'm not so sure about that! :)

Seems like a very versatile vehicle; I've seen the same photo auctioned under various captions. IIRC back in eBay.de auction N:o 180110202349 it was claimed to be a Polish armoured car (based on that I've got the shot filed under Poland).

Hi Markus!

Look what I have found in Dinko Predoevic's excellent book: Armoured units and vehicles in Croatia during WWII

Nicely done,
You answered your own question. Too bad the license plate is illegible in the book shot; It seems difficult to say if it's the same AC in both photos.

Hi Henning:

This will not be much help, but........
I have the usual references on German trailers, the Podzun-Verlag series, and a couple of other catalogue type books and none have anything like the larger trailer listed.

I wonder if it is a very early trailer perhaps from the RW era or even a civilian one or possibly a beute trailer.

Regarding the smaller one, the only thing that comes close is a small fire pump type trailer and I have no real good photos to scan but they have a similar box on the top and what looks like large diameter hoses going around the front of the trailer. If I find a good photo I will post it.

Hello Bill
Thanks for helping,
I found at Holgers site
http://www.kfzderwehrmacht.de/Homepage_ ... ilers.html
A trailer: SdAh 14 Trailer (1-axeld) for recovery, its only the name ,there is no pic :( maybe thats the trailer???

The smaller one:
my first idea was a pump for a liquid
but I think its no pump for the fire-service.
My background is fire-service.
We use "A-vacuum-hoses" only 6x1,6 meter or 4x2,5 meter. Its a physical think , you can only vacuum water from a deep of 10,0 meter, and for the pressure side of the pump we need "double rolled hoses" in 20 meter in C-52mm or B-75mm
On the pic you see 7 smaller hoses, like my opinion , a pump yes , a standart Ts8 on a TSA trailer no,
but what kind is it ??? :roll:

best regards Henning
