    This wagon is from the batch of 100 built in World War 2 by the SR at Lancing works for the Air Ministry, between 11-40 and 3-41. The tank barrels were supplied by an outside contractor, but we can perhaps detect the hand of O.V. Bullied in the design of the tank saddles, which unusually are welded fabrications instead of the more usual timber baulks.
