Text in original Preserved Tanks In Italy publication:

This Sherman is in running order and has taken part in film work. It has signs of small-arms projectile damage on the right side indicating it was probably recovered from a range. Displayed beside it is a Chrysler WC Multibank engine as used in the M4A4; presumably it has come from or is intended for use in this tank.
