Text in original Preserved Tanks In Britain publication:

According to the museum’s records this tank was manufactured by the Royal Ordnance Factory at Woolwich; however, it is not clear what the evidence is for this. Other sources indicate that all Mark IIA tanks were built by Vickers. It was put on the museum books in 1952, and was a static display at Tankfest 2006.
The contracts book records the original engine serial as 7619, later replaced by WOG 50. It is now missing. This tank has the No. 1 Mark II turret, with air louvres along the sides, but no anti-splash baffles. It has the long, 'fish tailed' silencer characteristic of the Rolls-Royce-engined vehicles. There were 29 tanks in the contract. (Source: Museum Vehicle Record).
