Text in original Preserved Tanks In Britain publication:

There are no original M3 tanks from British service in the museum collection. This example was supplied by the Brazilian government and is displayed here in recognition of the fact that Brazilian troops served with the Allies in Italy. It is a late production M3, with a turret similar to that used on the M3A1 but without a turret basket – a Stuart Hybrid. It is fitted with a seven cylinder air-cooled Guiberson radial Diesel engine. It has a plaque that reads as follows:

THIS TANK WAS KINDLY PRESENTED
BY THE BRAZILIAN ARMY
AND WAS DELIVERED TO THE UK
BY THE BRAZILIAN AIR FORCE
30-APRIL-1990
