This Crocodile appeared in the external storage area between August 2009 and August 2010. It is in a poor and rusty condition, missing its tracks, sprockets, idlers and many other components. It came from Salisbury Plain (source: P.-O. Buan/AFVNDB); its turret was recovered in about 1990 but the hull was still in situ in 2006.
