4. M151A2CDN 74-09188

(That first M38 has really been around the block and had a really heavy duty Southwind heater installation and about three layers of tac signs.)

My own M151A2 (not the one in the list up there) was part of a group of PPCLI(3) vehicles that were disposed of in Victoria, but unfortunately any CFR markings are looooong gone. Was there a block of M151A2 CFRs that went to PPCLI(3) from which I could sort of adopt one? A lot of the PPCLI ones that were scrapped out here had this really ugly "piece of railroad track" abortion for a bumper done as a field mod at some point, and I was hoping one day to find a pic of one of those in service and narrow the range down that way. Who knew there'd be so few pics of the M151A2 in Canadian service?

I've got nothing on the 2 x M38 and the M37. This info is long gone now from the server.

The M151A2 is originally from LDSH, followed by 15 Fd (Arty):

F86-415 - 17-Sep-86 UPDAT No 121401 MD 0122 0122 CFB CHILLIWACK

The last maint entry was on 19 Mar 86, with a mileage of 66542. Again, this may be in Km, so try converting back to miles if its way off.

Any pics of this said M151 would be of interest. I'm always collecting them as I am still a bit off from completing my M151A2 resto.

As far as a block of CFRs for the VP in Esquimalt:
74-09454 up to 09478
I didn't check each one individually, but as a betting man, I doubt the Navy was using them There were a half dozen more, but were one off CFR's not in any sequence.
