Text in original Preserved Tanks In Britain publication:

This Mark II was on the ranges of Otterburn training area before being recovered to be restored (source: R. Griffin/Conqueror). It is in a poor and rusty condition and is missing its track guards and many other external parts. It also shows signs of explosive ‘splash’ on the glacis, presumably from its time on ranges.
