Text in original Preserved Tanks In Britain publication:

This particular vehicle saw active service in Berlin under the Allied Control Commission before the destruction of the Berlin Wall in 1988 and the subsequent reunification of Germany. It arrived at Muckleburgh shortly after its decommission in that year. It appears to be in good condition, and is in running order.
