This is an extremely rear variety of trailer to find in good condition, 20,000 Type 1 trailers were made, and approximately 2,000 of the Type 2. The photos on the lower left is of two trailers that are owned by Frank Berg in Norway, the trailer on the top is definitely a British Airborne Type 1, however Frank has yet to identify the lower one. He believes it may be German.  If you have any information that might help, please email him. The Trailer shown in the photos under in the Green Primer is a Type 2.

   

The two trailers "as found", notice the rims on the top trailer ( original), Original Inner Flap.
