Hi Reg,

As has been said, looks like a rebuilt body. It needs the two folding handles which are currently missung form the lighweight hitch.

Looks like one of Richard Brereton's. I've got one currently shipping from the UK to the US.

At the rear of the trailer, what is that vertical plate and pole for?
Is it meant to tow another trailer?

Yes - there should be a tow hook attached to the metal plate.

These are in differing sizes depending on when the trailer was made, by whom and what you want to tow behind it... so a bigger gap between the jaws of the tow hook is required to tow the 75mm Pack Howitzer, than that required to tow another trailer.
