Text in original Preserved Tanks In The Netherlands publication:


This is a Ram II with 75-mm gun, with all apertures welded over, hence the presumption it was used as a target tank. Both modifications were carried out while it was in use with 1CACRU in the UK, before being transferred to the Dutch Army in 1947, together with 43 others. (Source: H. Spoelstra/AFVNDB).
No. 1 Canadian Armoured Corps Reinforcement Unit (1CACRU) was located near Headley in Hampshire, England. According to the record at RamTank.ca this tank had a 75mm gun and was located at CRU in October 1944, and was still held in stock in July 1945.
This Ram target tank was one of two that were displayed outside the gate of the tank workshop at Leusden. Later they were both moved inside the gate and displayed on a lawn surrounded by low hedges. The other one went to the Bovington tank museum. (Source: ShermanTank.nl).
