Hi all, I think these Matildas were in 4RTR. In any case my actual question is, does anyone know the purpose of the large numbers that were put on these tanks? (THE BRITISH ARMY IN NORTH AFRICA 1941) (2nd image source: Hoping the wind is strong enough on Twitter) PS edited caveat in tweet for second picture. "A British MK II tank. Remained with us at Capuzzo. Was later knocked out during an attack by the enemy on the Fort. Nov . 1942 [this should be 1941] I don't think Len took this photo, I suspect he purchased a print from somewhere. There are a few others with a '2 29' marking."
