This Cavalier was recovered from an Army range at Salisbury Plain in Wiltshire in 1985. It came from Larkhill and was a Gunner’s Observation Post (OP) tank in the 9th Armoured Division during its short service life (source: P.-O. Buan/SCTR). It is little more than a rusted wreck, missing its main armament, most roadwheels, tracks, and other components. It was recovered by a team led by Major Gillman, with alternative hard targets taking its place; there are traces of markings on the hull front of 9th Armoured Division which used it for training 1943-4 (source: Museum Vehicle Record).
