Trailer No 1 Mk 2 (Mark 2) is a second series landing trailer produced by several British companies during the Second World War.
An order for the production of trailers was received presumably in early 1944 from the British Ministry of Defense. Since SS Cars Ltd had already been manufacturing No 1 Mk 1 trailers since 1942, only a slight change in production processes had to be made.
The trailer had a maximum load capacity of 10 London handredweights (about 500 kilograms) and a base as 2 wheels.
It is authentically known that 20999 trailers of the second series (Mark 2) were produced by SS Cars Ltd, which actually makes them the main manufacturer of this series. a total of 24810 pieces were made. Of them:
Under contract S6798 (serial numbers from 5851143 to 5853142) 1999 pieces were produced;
Under contract S7120 (serial numbers from 6156693 to 6160692), 3999 pieces were produced;
Under contract S8055 (serial numbers from 6210181 to 6225182), 15,001 pieces were produced.
You can distinguish the second model from the first by looking at the following elements: Mark 1 has no fenders above the wheels and is based on a cylinder-shaped tow hitch.
