Text in original Preserved Tanks In Canada publication:

This M4A2 has a blocked up bow machine-gun mount. It has torn front mud flaps, has a broken suspension unit on the left side, and is fitted with tracks with badly worn out pads.
It is presumed to have been part of the original collection in the 1980s when it was housed at the 8th Concession dairy farm. It appears to have fittings for the Canadian Indestructible Roller Device (CIRD).
