This Leopard was acquired from the Military Vehicle Engineering Establishment. It is a Series III vehicle. It is believed that it may have been acquired in exchange for two Chieftains in the mid 1960s along with the Leopard displayed at Bovington Tank Museum. It was sectioned by Royal Ordnance apprentices and is now displayed with the interior open to view (source: J. Harris).
