Afrika Korps POW loading Comet Tank c1948.

When my Father was in the Army Afrika Korps personnel were still held as POWs. Here one is guiding a Comet Tank onto a Dyson (?)trailer c1948/9.

Chris,
Not 100% sure, but I think this may be an M9 Rogers trailer.
They were supplied from the USA on Lend-Lease as in the early part of the war there was not a suitable UK built trailer for the heavier tanks such as the Comet.
The Dyson and Crane trailers had flat sides and almost square wheel arches.
Regards,
Steve
