Text in original Preserved Tanks In The Netherlands publication:

This Centurion has a rain hood fitted over the driver’s hatch. The insignia and camouflage scheme indicate a Centurion of the Dutch Regiment Huzaren Prins Alexander (source: L. Delsing); this unit was named after Prince Alexander, the second son of Dutch King Willem II. According to its label this Centurion is a Mark 6/2, however this mark was not used by the Netherlands army, and it is actually a Dutch Mark 5/2. Its registration number is stamped into the nose plate, but it is painted with a different registration number.
