Information from the NEAM web site "G-APTW was used by a number of companies as a corporate transport, but its claim to fame was appearing in the Alistair MacLean film "Where Eight Bells Toll" in 1971 (starring Anthony Hopkins, Robert Morley and Jack Hawkins) for which it was painted up in pseudo Royal Navy colours. It was withdraw from service in 1973 and exhibited in a number of museums and collections before being acquired by NEAM in 1993."
