This Centurion is a Mark 12; its service units include 1st Royal Tank Regiment, 9th/12th Lancers and Queens Dragoon Guards (source: Museum Vehicle Record). It was put on the museum books in 1992. It is presumed that this Centurion is the one seen in the storage area in October 2008; if so it appeared to be in poor condition and was fitted with triple rubber block tracks.
