Recovered from Otterburn Ranges by Tracked Armour Group and 156 Transport Regiment RCT (was at grid reference 898 969 with turret at GR 902 964). Restoration revealed registration ‘HMH 802’ (possibly ‘T3447’), and the possible traces of an ‘H’ Battalion name. This tank was probably also used by 4th RTC. Engine and gearbox are not authentic. (Source: Museum Vehicle Record).
This A11 was put on the museum books in 1993. It is in running order and has taken part in displays, including Tankfest 2006.
