Text in original Preserved German Tanks publication:

This Ausf G has a plaque on its glacis plate that reads: “Built in 823 Armd Troops Wksp REME No.6 BAOR 1945”. It was number six of the Panthers and Jagdpanthers built by the British. It is fitted with swirl-cowl exhausts, and is missing its engine cover plates. It has the same cupola and other late features as the Bovington example, including having fittings for tools both on the hull side, and on the hull rear and engine deck (source: L. Archer). It was transferred from the RMCS at Shrivenham in England. This was in 1985, in exchange for a Marder MICV. While on display there it had two large non-standard headlights fitted. It also had three long bolts and a metal cylinder welded to its glacis, of unknown purpose, which have since been removed. It spent some considerable time in storage at the Trier depot in the late 1980’s. The turret and main armament were restored by the Navy arsenal in Wilhelmshaven/Kiel, and the hull with all sub-assemblies, including its British gearbox, by the Wehrtechnische Dienststelle für Kraftfahrzeuge und Panzer (WTD 41) in Trier. It is now part of the Koblenz BWB collection and will be displayed once further restoration is complete. It is in running order. It has an imitation Zimmerit coating (although this was dropped from September 1944) and carries the turret number “801” and the name “Ulrihc”. (Photo: R. Besecke).

Text in Preserved German Tanks Update:

The vehicle name was mis-spelled in the original edition, it should be "Ulrike" (source: R. Besecke).
