There are 4 known SKINK turret survivors, only 2 were used as Range targets, the other 2 were used as range arc markers and were saved by the Lord Strathcona's Horse (Royal Canadians) in 2003. One turret is still with the Regiment, the other was sent to the Canadian War Museum in exchange for spare parts for vehicle restoration projects.
Hi Anthony, thanks for pointing this out. I saw those errors too but refrained from commenting on the article.
