Text in original Preserved Tanks In Britain publication:


This Sexton appears to be fitted with Sherman tank track and is mounted on a sandbagged ramp. It has fittings for a tarpaulin cover. At one time it was held at the Royal School of Artillery, Larkhill (source: Gander/Outlines WP2: 25 pounder gun). Its label reads: “Sexton Self Propelled Gun 1945 … After the war they were used by units of the Royal Artillery as well as Territorial Army units. They were withdrawn from service in the mid 1950s. Many were sold to overseas armies such as this one which saw service with the Portuguese Army until the 1970s. This vehicle is on loan from the Royal Artillery Institution.”
