I wonder if the War Records Office kept their beaut T? 2nd pic.
It looks typical WW1 military set up.

I trust it was not a windy day when those boys decided to move that
5K water tank !!! That "parachute" has enough lift to carry the truck to
China !!! :-)

Another good set! Quite a variation of wheels in this bunch. One with big wheels in front, one with solid tyres in the rear and pneumatic in the front, and one with cushion tyres all around.
Thanks again!
Drive carefully, and enjoy,W2

About that water truck: Let's see... "5000 US gallons @ 7# per gallon = 35,000#", or 17.5 TONS! Were they even able to get it down the road???? I remember my Dad telling me about a ton-and-a-half of cabbage on the TT, let alone another 16 Tons??? Wow!

That is not a water truck but an empty tank that is placed under a wind water pump or at the pipe line to hold the water in storage until it is used. They are just transporting and empty tank on it's side.

Or perhaps, anticipating the future drag racing "sport", they are experimenting
with ideas that will ultimately perfect the drag chute to slow the car after its run ?
