This Cavalier was put on the Bovington museum books in 1996; it was planned to be used with Bovington’s other Cavalier to make one vehicle. It was moved to the coach park in 2002. (Source: Museum Vehicle Record).
This Cavalier was recovered from the Otterburn Training Area (OTA) in the 1990s (source: steveo578/HMVF). It has since been transferred to the IOW museum (source: A. Barrell/HMVF). It is missing many of its roadwheels and has its tracks piled on top of the forward hull and turret.
It was recently put on sale on MilWeb with the following text: “We have the following vehicles for sale: A24 Cavalier. As far as we know there is only two left so a very rare second world war tank. It is in a very bad shape and will require a lot of work. Serious offers please.”.
