Text in original Preserved Tanks In Britain publication:

This is a Model 1941 KV-1 with cast turret. It was built in the ‘Tankograd’ factory at Chelyabinsk. Two KV-1 tanks, which according to contemporary sources had a lot of extra care lavished on them, were supplied by the USSR in 1943 as samples to the West, one to Britain, one to the USA. This exhibit is the British sample and after evaluation at the British Army’s School of Tank Technology it was donated to the Tank Museum. It was put on the museum books in 1952. It has been painted to represent a Red Army tank, whitewashed for winter conditions and bearing the patriotic slogan ‘From the women of Leningrad to the Front’.
