Text in original Preserved Tanks In Britain publication:

This Sherman is consists of parts from a number of different tanks and is little more than a wreck. It has the front hull from one tank and the rear hull from another tank. It is missing its turret, tracks and many other external components. It was recovered from a range and its glacis and transmission covers show signs of small calibre penetrations. Along with the Museum’s other M4A1 it was the subject of a documentary.
