This Centurion Mark 5/2 has the markings of Staff Company, 101 Tank Battalion. It was a gate guardian at the Du Moulin barracks in Soesterberg. Then it was moved to Seedorf, Germany when the 101 Tkbat deployed over there. When 101 Tkbat was disbanded it moved to the museum. (Source: L. Delsing/AFVNDB).
It was in running order in 2007 (source: W. Schwabe/AFVNDB). It is fitted with triple-rubber-block track.
