|Notes||The Bishop was the merger of a Valentine tank chassis mounting a 25 pdr gun/howitzer, the weapon was housed in an armoured box which gave a high silhouette, it also suffered from slow speed due to the Valentine being an Infantry tank and the gun itself could only archive a low elevation which limited its range to under 6000m. The Bishop was withdrawn from front line service when the M7 Priest and Sexton became available, and it finished its career as a training vehicle.|
