Text in original Preserved Tanks In The Netherlands publication:

This Archer belonged to one of the anti-tank battalions of the British armoured divisions in north-west Europe that were equipped with Archers from October 1944. It was one of the original vehicles displayed outside in the museum park, when it had a wooden board and tarpaulin roof over the fighting compartment. It is now displayed with mannequins in the fighting compartment to represent the crew.
