In the beginning…

The British Military WW2 20CWT Water Trailer was an essential piece of equipment during World War II. 

Design and Purpose

The 20CWT (20 hundredweight) water trailer was designed to transport water to troops in the field. It played a crucial role in providing drinking water, cooking, and hygiene facilities for soldiers.

These trailers were towed behind military vehicles, typically trucks or lorries, and carried a significant amount of water.

Specifications Capacity: 

The trailer could hold approximately 180 gallons (818 liters) of water.

It had a robust steel chassis with two wheels.

Towing Vehicle: The 20CWT water trailer was towed by various military vehicles, including trucks and jeeps.

It served as a mobile water supply point, allowing troops to refill their canteens, wash equipment, and maintain basic hygiene.

Post-War Use:

While the 20CWT water trailer was primarily associated with World War II, some variants continued to be used in the post-war period. Modifications and updates were made to adapt these trailers for different purposes, such as carrying generators or other equipment.
