Text in original Preserved German Tanks publication:

This late-production Ausf H is in an extremely poor and rusted condition. It is missing most of its external parts, including half of both tracks. It is believed to have served with either Pz Regiment 22 or SS Pz Regiment 12. It took part in the Normandy fighting in June 1944 and was knocked out near Caen and Cagny by a Canadian unit. From the dump at St Lambert-sur-Dive it went in 1948 to a scrap yard on the Route de Paris at Le Mans. It was recovered in 1976 and put on display in the ‘Musée du 19 Août 1942’ (where it is shown). This was a private military museum located on the cliffs to the east of the town of Pourville, east of Dieppe, and dedicated to the Dieppe raid of 19 August 1942. After the Pourville museum closed this PzKpfw IV found its way into the Becker collection. [Preserved Tanks in France: Number 213].
