    Hi All,

    i found an Italian report with a small list of UK census numbers but i didn't find anything about
    tank model and unit.

    This is the list:

    T 3419 T1753 T1687 T2047 T1665 T1669 T1950 T1556 T2041

    Thanks in advance for any possible help.

    Hi Enzus,

    I couldn't any unit information on the specific numbers you quote but at least have the following:-

    D1483 - D1582 Dragon Light Mk IId
    T1641 - T1681 Vickers Light Mk VI
    T1684 - T1693 Vickers Light Mk VI
    T1726 - T1799 Vickers Light Mk VIa
    D1922 - D1961 Dragon Light Mk III
    T1985 - T2084 Vickers Light Mk VIa, b and c
    T3292 - T3430 Carrier, Bren No 2 Mk I

    Those that fall within the D numbers maybe Vickers Lights. But not sure why they are T numbers, or if they are Dragons.

    cheers

    Kevin

    Hi Kevin,

    thanks so much for your help.
    I will work again on italian radio intercept papers.
    Some times i found T and 4 numbers and other times only 4 numbers.
    There are also few numbers from 4000 serie and 5000 serie and only one about 6000 serie - [6883]
    Also i found few census numbers like "Z381804" that is probabily refered to Morris trucks.

    Regards

    No problem.
    Please post any numbers you come across.
    Yes you are correct. Z381804 is a Morris-Commercial 8 cwt 4 x 2 truck.

    cheers
