Text in original Preserved Tanks In The Netherlands publication:

This Cromwell Mark IVF was put out of action by a direct hit at the rear during the final attack on Overloon. The shot set fire to the engine and this in turn resulted in the ammunition exploding. Its suspension is damaged and it is missing its original tracks. This tank had been used by a unit of the British 79th Armoured Division. “A” and “C” squadrons of the Westminster Dragoons and 617 Squadron Royal Engineers were joined in support of the British 3rd Infantry Division and the 6th Guards Armoured Division. This tank was one of the original vehicles displayed outside in the museum park. During restoration it was fitted with tracks from an FV432 armoured personnel carrier (source: T. Royall).
