So they could only be Matilda MkIIA then. Thanks for putting me right. I was assuming that there was another source that Jentz had found that told him exactly what mark of tank was issued, I've even seen the serial numbers in some books, although I can't imagine they would have been entered into war diaries (they certainly weren't by 1944 - or not in any of the ones that I've seen at the National Archives).JBond wrote,
It's not that difficult since there should only be a choice of one. Infantry Tank Mk.II. Mk. I never went to the desert, Mk. III did not arrive until later, and was not issued to 4 RTR in 1941, AFAIK.
