I'm wondering if it belongs to a friend of mine, Tony Goff. I'm sure he was restoring a USAAF tanker.

That rig came over from Belgium, and extremely nice it is too.

I believe that it is a type of tank trailer normally used by the U.S. Army. I'm not aware that any of these were used by USAAF, certainly not seen any evidence of them on the 8th AF bases in UK, but always happy to be proved wrong! Looky here:
