Text in original Preserved Tanks In Britain publication:

Forty Vickers light tanks (Model 1936) on order for the KNIL, the army of the Dutch East Indies, were taken over by the War Office on completion in 1939 and were used for training by the British Army for the duration of the war. They were known unofficially as ‘Dutchmen’ to the British. This example was presumably preserved because it was one of this batch. It was put on the museum books in 1952. It was previously on display in a tableau with the museum’s Vickers 6-ton light tank.
