The pic was -I think -taken 1959-60 so would it still have been 1st Guards Armoured Brigade or would the name change to 1st Armoured Brigade have taken place. The picture I originally posted was just to clearly show the formation badge- the attached is the actual vehicle. Its an RE unit based in Hamelin  part of the Amphib engineer regt.  I have assumed the date because that is the timeline for 17 becoming the number for RE fld sqns in armoured Divs.
