This vehicle was part of an agreement with Marcus Glenn to exchange two non-running Scorpions for one running Scorpion. It was returned to the Tank Museum on 6 September 2010. (Source: Museum Vehicle Record).
The record card for this Scorpion shows that it travelled extensively – it was at CVD Ludgershall in December 1972, on 17 BVD stock in February 1973, with 17/21 Lancers BAOR, then 16/5 Lancers in November 1974, the Antwerp Ordnance Depot in September 1979, with 16/5 Lancers in January 1980, 2 RTR in November 1980, on stock with 2 ADS in October 1986, with QOH in May 1987 and then WSV (presumably Witham Specialist Vehicles for disposal) in May 2004. It was put on the museum books in 2005. It is in running order and took part in Tankfest 2011.
