This Ausf F, chassis number 28434, was captured in Tunisia during the War from the Regimental Headquarters Company of Panzer Regiment 7. It was at the School of Tank Technology, Chobham Lane, Chertsey, before being moved to Bovington. It has a British 15mm BESA substituted in place of its original armament. It now carries the turret number “312”. It previously had the turret number “III 14”; prior to that it had the markings “R” on the turret, “45” on the superstructure side and “F57” on the hull front.
