Text in original Preserved Tanks In Britain publication:

This Chieftain Mark 2 tank was received from the Military Engineering Experimental Establishment (MEXE) at Hurn, near Christchurch, where it was apparently used for gunnery experiments with various extemporised brackets attached to the turret. It was then carrying the registration 06SP50. It was subsequently restored by the Friends and restored to its original registration. (Source: Museum Vehicle Record). It is in running order and has taken part in a number of Tankfests (including 2006 and 2008).
