Text in original Preserved Tanks In Britain publication:

This A13 was put on the museum books in 1949. It is painted to represent the tank commanded by one of the museum’s volunteers (Ron Huggins) of 10th Royal Hussars in 1st Armoured Division with the British Expeditionary Force in France, 1940. The 1st Armoured Division operated mainly in western France and fought on in June 1940 after the Dunkirk evacuation until the surviving personnel were evacuated to Britain at the end of June 1940. The turret of this A13 has been reworked to approximately Cruiser Tank Mark IV / A13 Mark II standard with the addition of extra spaced armour plating on the turret front and sides. This armour, however, is not entirely in the standard arrangement as the front corners of the turret have been undercut.
