Text in original Preserved Tanks In Britain publication:

In 1994 the British Army sold its M109s to the Austrian Army as it converted to the AS90. The Austrian government refurbished an M109 for the Woolwich museum so the registration number might be from a British vehicle but not necessarily this one. It is fitted with tracks of an older style than those used on British examples. (Source: M. Godsman/Missing Lynx).
It is currently fitted with large stowage cages on the front of the turret; however it was previously displayed inside the museum without these.
