Text in original Preserved Tanks In The Netherlands publication:

This Mark V Churchill plus “Tiger”, “Jaguar” and “Rook” made up the four tanks of Squadron Headquarters, Number 2 Squadron, 4th Battalion Coldstream Guards. This battalion took part in the final attack on Overloon. On 12 October 1944 this tank ran into a minefield on one of the British attack routes and had its underside impacted. It is now missing its belly plate and some of the wheel stations on the left side.
Two crewmen in the turret, R. Silman and G. Wright, were killed when the mine exploded. The driver of the tank, Bob Dare, was lightly wounded and managed just in time to help the remaining two crew members, who were seriously wounded, to get out of the tank. They were the bow gunner, J. Dare, and the commander, J. Garner. Bob Dare returned regularly to the museum after the war to commemorate his fallen comrades; in January 2007 he died at the age of 82. (Source: Pantser.net).
