The data listed herein is taken from the Longue Pointe Ordnance Depot vehicle logs which are held by the Canadian War Museum (CWM). The logs themselves span the period from approximately April 1958 to March 1970, although there are a few earlier entries, mostly dealing with the relubricating of the vehicle. In most cases, besides being identified by it's Canadian Army Registration (CAR) number, the Mark (Mk) and type of vehicle is also entered, which are; combat tank, control tank, command tank, recovery tank and one flamethrower tank. In total, these logs cover 343 individual Centurion tanks, which have been set out here in four separate tables based on the year of the CAR number. The information contained within each table is a true transcription of what appears in each individual vehicle log. Anyone having further information or photos of any of these tanks, or on further Centurions, is encouraged to forward to RamTank, for inclusion within these tables.

RamTank acknowledges Mark W. Tonner for transcribing and organizing the hand-written documents.

CAR No.
