Text in original Preserved Tanks In Britain publication:

This T-26 was used by Soviet forces in the war against Finland in the winter of 1940/41. It was captured and used by the Finnish Army, in whose markings it is now shown. Later the engine was removed and the tank buried, up to its turret, as part of the fixed defences of the Mannerheim Line, built across the Karelian Isthmus near the border with Russia. As part of the post-war reparations, Finnish Karelia was transferred from Finnish to Russian control.
