Used to be the armoured hull of one of those in Jacksonís scrapyard at the Rocket Site at Misson near Doncaster. Lots of other treasures there including a Dorchester converted into an Armoured fire tender for one of the Royal Ordnance Factories. All gone now....

The REME historic collection has had one for some years. Iíve measured up most of it at Borden and subsequently Lyneham, where it resides now. Needs a bit of restoration (missing the front panel and thereís a decent chance of falling through the floor if not careful) but itís a rare beast. There was a nice restored example at Budge in the 1980s that I believe was owned by Margaret Gilliat but not sure where that is now.
