Interestingly, the article states that the British 2pdr in France 1940 was using only APHE, not solid AP.
Despite the explosive filler of the APHE, it actually had less penetration than the AP shot.
I do know from an Axis History Forum debate on 2pdr that APHE were available in North Africa, as we used some on trials against captured M13/40 hulks. It was somewhere in this massive thread:
