Text in original Preserved Tanks In Britain publication:

This Matilda is in a very poor condition, missing its tracks, most of its wheels and suspension and many other parts. It is little more than a wreck and has many projectile hits on its left side (these have been highlighted with red paint). It was obtained from Warminster Range to help Bob Grundy restore another Matilda.
