I would like to gather additional information about my Sd.Ah.25/2 Wehrmacht Signal Corps trailer as seen below.
It was a Euro return to the US by a Provost officer assigned to Post War Germany. It looks like it has some fire brigade paint over the German Yellow/sea green spots camo.
When pressure washing it about a year after I bought it I found hastily painted Allied stars on the side under several layers of paint Making this what I believe was "during conflict" captured war booty.
I recently found a picture on the 3rd Amored site about one in use by a Command Halftrack. That picture is on their site here:
Any information about the trailer or the type of Generator being used in it would be very helpful.

Inside the trailer was stored: two drums each with 250 meters of drunk wire, 16 porcelain double-bell insulators, one safety belt (for climbing), one set of crampon, and tools and some spare parts.

Well I can give a answer to the question about the generator it is a Zundapp engine that is driving the generator . The German indication for the set is Elektr. Machinensatz Evz 6D. It is also in use by thee german V-2 batterie placed in to the Steyr 2000 Spannungs versorgungswagen. The trailer that Rolf did post is a Sd.Ah. 23 and is a special trailer with for battery charging.
