Securing rings below the loading platform known as trammelling rings, used in the unloading of bombs from delivery lorries. Ropes tied to them would be looped around the bombs before being offloaded and 'trammelled' down the slope of the platform ready for fusing and attachment of fins. Tractor towed bomb trolleys would then take the completed bombs out to the aircraft to be loaded.
