Text in original Preserved Tanks In Britain publication:


The tank was one of a batch imported from Poland by McGregor and Budge Haulage, and offered for sale to private collectors. It was purchased by ITDU for filming during LAW 80 anti-tank trials, and was expected to be destroyed as a target. However, the Museum’s existing T-34-85, which was in poor condition with no engine, gearbox or internal fittings, was used instead and this vehicle consequently added to the collection. It is complete, except for the radio, gunner’s sight and secondary armament. All instrument panels, instructions and stamps are in Polish. (Source: Museum Vehicle Record).
According to other sources this ex-Polish T-34 was purchased by the ITDU at Warminster from the Budge organisation which imported it into the country, and that it suffered superficial damage during trials of the LAW 80 aiming rifle. It was put on the museum books in 1987 and underwent restoration in 2001. It is in running order and took part in Tankfests 2006, 2009 and 2010.
