25PDR tractor and trailer (photo) by 


25 PDR (lbs) tractor and ammo trailer.
The owner’s father had started rebuilding this from bits found in scrap yards years ago. I think he said the the barrel has been proof stamped or whatever has to be done so it can fire blanks!

Ted, can you provide tech details and correct names please??

My main interest is painting Aviation Art.
I get a lot of enjoyment researching the historical background behind the picture I’ve been commissioned to paint.
I work in acrylic on my big paintings on canvas board but use water colors, pastels, soft and oil, for smaller pieces.
I also enjoy doing pet portraits in soft pastels on tinted paper, from photographs. Ideal presents for Xmas and birthdays.

    Nice set Neil. Morris Commercial ‘Quad’ 4×4 Gun Tractor. Mark I or II. With Ammunition trailer which went behind the Tractor and the 25-pounder was hitched on behind that. 4cyl. engine of 70 b.h.p. (Pistons like dinner plates). 4-ton winch. Had one of these that I restored with a couple of other guys. But no extra bits though!!

    Neil I am sure the trailer was called a ‘Limber’ same as the horse drawn ones from pre-vehicle days. – Ted
