It was initially assigned to 4th Indian Armoured Brigade (which later became 254th Indian Armoured Brigade and, still later, 254th Indian Tank Brigade). In 1943, it was reassigned to Indian XV Corps and transported in great secrecy to Arakan prior to taking part in the Battle of the Admin Box, in which its M3 Lee tanks proved decisive.

It spent the remainder of the war in India and Burma. It was part of 50th Indian Tank Brigade and based in Madras and Bangalore prior to being disbanded in 1947.
