Text in original Preserved Tanks In Britain publication:

Only 23 of these vehicles were ever produced, all but 3 after the end of the First World War. This Mark IX was one of the original tanks preserved on the heath at Bovington (though it was not put on the museum books until 1949). For many years it was displayed outside, in front of the museum. It is currently displayed with its right door open so the interior can be viewed.
