Text of the plaque:

Panzer IIC Tank

Lightly armed and armoured, Germany's Panzer II played an important role in the early years of the Second World War.

Germany originally developed the Panzer II in the mid-1930's, and used it in the invasions of Poland in 1939 and France in 1940. Although replaced by larger, more capable tanks, the Panzer II remained in service for reconnaissance work and other duties. Its chassis later formed the basis for self-propelled guns and other armoured fighting vehicles.

This particular vehicle, brought to Canada from North-Africa during the war, was acquired by the Canadian War Museum in 1959.
