Text in original Preserved Tanks In Britain publication:

This S-35 tank had been captured during the war and employed by the Germans who carried out various small modifications (German aerial base, and commander’s cupola cut off in the style adopted by Germans on captured French equipment). It was presented to the museum by France in June 1957 (source: D. Goulty). It was put on the museum books in 1962. It is shown in the markings of the 4th Cuirassiers of 1st DLM which adopted the Joan of Arc badge. It is displayed with its side hatch removed so the interior can be seen.
