Text in original Preserved Tanks In Britain publication:

This vehicle was originally a Mark VII in its post-war AVRE form but it is being restored to the standard Mark VII version. Unlike most surviving Mk VII tanks, this one was not converted to a flame thrower Crocodile variant although, as with all tanks of this Mark, there are bolts at the rear to permit the flame thrower trailer attachment to be fitted. The tank had been used as an occasional infantry anti-tank weapon target, and the main armament was damaged by a charge being placed in the barrel. The right hand side pannier door had been removed but was found lying next to the tank. (Source: ChurchillTank.com).
The turret of this tank was visible in 2009 mounted on a Sherman M4A1 hull, though the tank itself could not be seen.
