It will then be displayed to demonstrate the original use of these rail vehicles, though it will be over-gauge for the rail lines at Quainton.”. It is a Mark 11 with Stillbrew armour around the turret front. Its service included CVD Ludgershall, Queens Royal Irish Hussars and 2nd Royal Tank Regiment (source: Bovington Museum Vehicle Record).
