Text in original Preserved Tanks In Britain publication:


This M3A1 was one of the batch of sixteen Stuarts imported from Brazil by RR Motor Services in October 2008. It is in running order and took part in the War & Peace Show at Beltring in England 22-26 July 2009.
It was handed over at Bovington on 25 September 2009, and was restored by Friends of the Tank Museum as a British ‘Honey’ Stuart of the North African campaign during the winter of 2009-10. The whole of the upper body was cleaned of rust and treated with rust inhibitor, and then spray painted ready for her first show appearance, the Trucks & Troops Show at the National Motor Museum in May 2010.

It was on display inside the museum for some time and took part in Tankfest 2011. It was moved into storage in about November 2011 (source: Museum Vehicle Record).
