Text in original Preserved Tanks In The Netherlands publication:

This M47 has rain gutters on the turret sides and the mounting for a data plate on the hull rear; these features indicate that it probably saw service with the Italian Army. It is fitted with a main armament firing simulator on top of the gun barrel. It was previously on display at the Marshall Museum at Zwijndrecht with a mannequin standing in the commander’s cupola; it is now displayed at Overloon in the same way.
