    Just found a short list of tank casualties from 22 CAR.
    Can anyone explain the meaning of W, X, Y and Z codes.

    X Casualty = reparable within 24 hours
    Y Casualty = Over 24 hours, requires assistance from repair personnel and likely to be repairable by unit fitters and light aid detachments or second line workshops.
    Z Casualty = requires extensive repair or replacement involving evacuation.
    Zw = Total loss, burnt out.

    Thanks for the clarification.
    There are some interesting documents in this file., which I should have included the link - sorry, attached mentions the Centurion and Black Prince, Alecto, Centaur Kangaroo? ( never seen or heard of one) but the document does not seem to be dated. In an earlier document it mentions the Coventry Armoured Car.
