This M4A4 has CIRD (Canadian Indestructible Roller Device) fittings (source: CHAFVR). It is missing its gun, mantlet, gun mount, tracks and other components.
It belongs to Lord Strathcona’s Horse and it is being stored at Kars for that unit and the CWM at Ottawa. It was previously at the Military Heritage Museum at Brantford until about 1999, and was originally discovered by Ed Storey in 1992 at CFB Kingston where it stood on the base golf course in the Gore Training Area. Its engine deck plate is on the M4A2 (76) HVSS on display at CFB Kingston (Source: AFVNDB).
