Text in original Preserved Tanks In Britain publication:

The British Army never ordered any of this type, Type B, but on the outbreak of war in September 1939, it took over several of those which had been built for other nations and used them in the training role for the rest of the war. This one was saved because it was one of those taken over, and was put on the museum books in 1952. It is a mixture of Mark F hull design and Mark E mechanics. It is not fitted with its original gun and mantlet. It had previously been on display in a tableau of a Vickers-Armstrong commercial tank stand with the Vickers Dutchman light tank in the Inter-War Hall.
