This M74 recovery vehicle was seen and photographed at the Canadian Forces School of Electrical and Mechanical Engineering (CFSEME) at Borden in July 2011 (source: H. Skaarup/Ironsides). It was on display at Borden on Armed Forces Day in 2008/9 and was a runner (source: G. Weidmann/Modern Canadian Vehicles). It was fully restored by RCEME after being brought back from a European country, probably Belgium (source: C. Johnson/G104).
