Definitely not large animal transport. I figure the animals it hauled were two-legged.

FROM: THE ARMY VETERINARY SERVICE DURING THE GREAT WAR, WW1


CORPS MOBILE VETERINARY HOSPITALS
Very important note: A system for the evacuation of animals was adopted. Animals were evacuated by the Division Mobile Veterinary Section (Units) overland to the Corps Mobile Hospitals. From the Corps Mobile Veterinary Hospitals the animals were transferred either overland or by rail to the S.O.S. Veterinary Hospitals. Later Army Evacuation Stations were installed at points near railroads and in such a situation that they were easily accessible to all Divisions in a specified area. Animals were convoyed overland from Division Mobile Veterinary Hospitals to these Army Evacuation Stations and from the the latter place to S.O.S. Veterinary Hospitals by rail. To assist in the evacuation of animals that were unable to travel overland, motor trucks were used as ambulances. These ambulances were constructed so as to accommodate five animals.

Unit No. 1, Active Service February 1918 to September 1919, Unit No. 2 June 1918 to July 1919, Unit No. 3 August 1918 to December 1918, Unit No. 4 July 1918 to December 1918, Unit No. 5 November 1918 to December 1918, Unit No. 6 Never organized, Unit No. 7 November 1918 to August 1919, Unit No. 8 November 1918 to June 1919, Unit No. 9 November 1918 to July 1919, IV Corps September 1918 to June 1919.

Makes one wonder if that could be one of the elusive 1917 built trucks?
I know that I have seen at least ten times as many survivors for sale than were ever built. Some of them with '26/'27 frames and engines.

Here's my two legged offspring.

Robert B, The people of the First World War also need to be remembered. You, and your truck, are a good part of that effort. Thank you.
