Text in original Preserved Tanks In The Netherlands publication:

This Sexton was one of those in service with the British and Canadian divisions in 21st Army Group in June 1944 just after the Normandy Landings, replacing the M7 Priests. It came from a museum at Delfzijl which closed in around 1976, and was one of the original vehicles displayed outside in the museum park. It was just a rusted hulk, missing its gun and other parts, but has been fully restored (though its tracks are on backwards). It is now displayed under a camouflage net as part of a tableau.
