Text in original Preserved Italian Tanks publication:

According to museum records this M14/41 was despatched to an African distribution centre in July 1942 so it is assumed to have been captured in North Africa during 1942 (though the location is not known). It was examined at the School of Tank Technology, Chobham Lane, Chertsey, before being moved to Bovington. It was put on the museum books in 1951. It shows signs of damage to the track guards and other external parts. It is displayed with its driver’s hatch open and side hatch removed so the interior can be seen; mannequins illustrate the driver and co-driver positions.
