Text in original Preserved Tanks In Poland publication:

This Sexton was restored by the proprietors of the Muzeum Zabytków Techniki Wojskowej (source: Old Timer). It is named after the city of Breda in the Netherlands which was liberated during the Second World War by the 1st Polish Armoured Division. The Sexton’s label reads: “The first artillery unit of the Polish Armed Forces in the West that received the Sexton SP guns was the 1st Motor Artillery Regiment of the 1st Armored Division. The 7th Horse Artillery Regiment, an artillery unit assigned to the 2nd Warszawska Armored Division, which was raised shortly prior to the war’s end, was another unit that too used vehicles of this type. An estimated number of 60-80 Sextons were in use with the Polish units. The vehicle on display carries the markings of the 1st Motor Artillery Regiment of the 1st Armored Division.”
