Text in original Preserved Tanks In Britain publication:

When a good condition T-34 was purchased by ITDU for filming during LAW 80 anti-tank trials, it was expected to be destroyed as a target. However, this T-34, which was in poor condition, with no engine, gearbox or internal fittings was used instead and the other T-34 consequently added to the collection. (Source: Museum Vehicle Record for other T-34).
This T-34 was put on the museum books in 1985 and had been acquired from the Royal Military College of Science at Shrivenham. It is presumed to be the one seen at Shrivenham in 1984, which was missing its left-hand track and sprocket plus its main gun and mantlet. Marked ‘GONE’ in museum record. Its fate in the trials and its current location are not known.
