|Could any vets out there help me in trying to research the service history of this jeep. I have had help from many, OMVPA, Maple Leaf-Up and others but I'm still missing a couple of key pieces.
I have recently found a 1953 M38A1 CDN in original condition( January 15 delivery) I lifted off some OD paint and found the CAR numbers under the doors 53-32330 , Central Command decal on the rear corner and underneath that, the 1st Canadian Inf Div yellow maple leaf on red.
On the left front fender it appeaars to be a White 7 on red background, its a guess, not much paint left. One of the questions remaining is 2574 was on the hood front. 2574/30 is on the rear. After removeal of the 2574 on the hood front, there was a 1810 stenciled. These two numbers, 1810 then later 2574 or 2574/30 would mean what? And any ideas on how to track them?
I have had much appreciated input from many across Canada but I'm hopeing that someone here will be able to help out.
Does anyone remember working with vehicals of this vintage or know where any links to Canadian photos might be?
Ottawa(museum) and the DND have provided no help.
T hanks in Advance
