Text in original Preserved Tanks In Britain publication:

The Bovington database lists a very poor condition Churchill Mark VII tank that was rescued from Warminster Range and put on the museum books in 2002. Marked ‘GONE’ in museum record on 17 September 2002. It is presumed that this is the same vehicle and that it was been transferred to the Isle of Wight. It is missing its turret, tracks, sprockets, idlers and many other components. It is believed that it is being used as a ‘donor’ vehicle for parts for restoring the other Churchills in the museum’s collection.
