Text in original Preserved Tanks In Britain publication:

This is a Mark 5/4C (source: Museum Vehicle Record). It was put on the museum books in 1989. Marked ‘GONE’ in museum record on 21 April 2011. It is presumed that this Chieftain is the one seen in the storage area in October 2008; if so it was painted overall in a green and black camouflage scheme but appeared to be in poor condition.
