The US Sherman tanks were out of gauge on all wagons readily available to the war effort, so Gloucester Carriage & Wagon Co, Head Wrightson and Southern Railway built new Warwells. These have proven remarkably long-lived and versatile. The Min of Defence had many brought up to modern air braked standards c1979 and some have been further converted by widening. But many others have found various uses with BR, their engineers, private firms etc.
