Does anyone on the list know how I can go about finding the date of
manufacture / entry into service of my Sankey trailer ?

My insurers would like the information and so would I.

I have been able to read some data from the plate underneath :-
Vehicle No. 66AW32 Chassis No. 74
AVC 28550790 Contract No. WV11134
NSN 2330998067070

Best wishes

my NT Mk2 type FV2361 is chassis number 0139 and went into service in 1987...but i think its fair to assume that these trailers were made and stored for years if not decades sometimes before they were issued..i would like to say its dated from the mid 60's..?? anyhow these are the people you need to contact..its free..check your junkmail for a reply and print it off.

Sankey B card info is available from the normal channels, e.g. Army via RLC museum.
Here is mine, for example.
