Text in original Preserved Tanks In Britain publication:

This Mark II was used as a training aid for recovery crews by the REME at Bordon. Most of its time was spent sitting in a water-filled hole on the area and every so often it was winched out and then pushed back in again. It has since come to the Museum and is to be fully restored. (Source: R. Griffin/Conqueror).
It is in a poor and rusty condition and is missing its track guards and many other external parts.
