The numbers stamped into the left side of the upper engine deck indicate that it was swapped from another M60 (serial number 5934).
This tank was seen displayed at the intersection of Waterloo Road West and Ortona Road in 2008. In March 2013 it had been relocated from the tennis courts to the corner of Dieppe and Alamein (source: B. Clark/AFVNDB).
