Text in original Preserved Tanks In Poland publication:

This Sherman is in running order. It was purchased from abroad in 2010 (source: Old Timer); it was acquired from Loxton, South Africa. There its gun had been demilitarised by having a hole cut into the barrel by oxyacetylene torch. It is unusual in apparently being in a Second World War configuration, not showing signs of the 1950s Mutual Defense Assistance Program (MDAP) updates such as the fitting of a muzzle brake, mantlet cover and infantry telephone (source: P.-O. Buan/Shadock.fr).
