Sadly I can’t help with the identification, but would it be possible for more pictures of it?

Ok no problem. I understand that the 76th is an armoured unit, within a division? Unfortunately the vehicle hasn't retained the divisional markings!! It only had the original pass plates in one of the lockers.

Hi Gavin,

The red over blue square denotes Royal Artillery. I would think the Guy dates from early war period by its camo pattern that i recall when seeing it some years ago. The 76 could denote a Royal Horse Artillery Regiment attached to an armoured division up until 1942. I would speculate this vehicle was in UK only for training. Only saying this because of the paint scheme.

Worth contacting the Royal Artillery Museum, which I think is now located at Larkhill.

 

regards, Richard

Hi Richard, I will contact them and see if they can identify the H number.

 

Many thanks
