Text in original Preserved Tanks In Britain publication:

This Centurion is in running order and regularly gives driving displays. It is missing its side skirts. Its serial number and rear turret hatch, and the lack of additional forward return rollers, indicate that it was built as a Mark 2 before being up-gunned with a Type A 20pdr gun to Mark 3 standard.
