Text in original Preserved Tanks In Britain publication:

The New Zealand Royal Armoured Corps received ten M41A1s from the US Army in 1960. These remained in service with the 2nd Armoured Regiment until 1982, when they were replaced by twenty-six Scorpions. This M41 was a gift of the New Zealand Government and is shown with New Zealand Army markings. It was transported from Auckland to Felixstowe in September 1988 on the MV Vodice. It has a recorded mileage of 4026 miles. The maker’s plate in the driver’s compartment has been removed, but features of this vehicle indicate that it was built after vehicle 1803. It has a B47 Wireless Set, dated 1960, serial NZ 101, complete with headsets. Periscopes are complete, except for part of the commander’s one. This tank has the elevation and traverse controls characteristic of the M41A1. (Source: Museum Vehicle Record).
