Text in original Preserved Tanks In Britain publication:

The TOG was a tank designed in 1939 by a committee (‘The Old Gang’) whose members had been involved in tank design during the First World War. Two prototypes were produced by Fosters of Lincoln: TOG 1 with all-round tracks and a Matilda Tank turret, and TOG 2 with recessed tracks and a 6pdr gun in a mock up turret. In 1942 this second vehicle, TOG 2, was refitted with a 17pdr turret similar to those used on the contemporary Challenger Tank and was redesignated TOG 2*. The type was not developed further and this prototype was put on the museum books in 1951; it was displayed outside for many years. It is currently displayed with its left side door open so that the interior can be seen. It has a plaque fixed on its glacis.
