Text in original Preserved Tanks In Britain publication:

This vehicle appears to be an early re-worked Mk I or Mk II which has been given a new turret and then upgraded to Mk VI specification by the mounting of a 75mm gun, ARV cupola and Mk VII suspension (source: Churchill Register). It used to be on display at the Bovington Tank Museum entrance. Marked ‘LOAN OUT’ in Bovington museum database on 30 June 2005.
