Default British tanks enter Uedem

Good evening,

I have found in a lot of French photos this one from AFP (Agence France Presse) dated 07.03.1945 showing British tanks entering the German town of Uedem.

I have seen this photo via Google precising that these tanks were 15th/19th King's Royal Hussars

Oh dear, a death trap for so many, rather them than me, I hope they survived those final few weeks!

As a collector of all things 15th/19th (family links) would it potentially be for sale?

Looks very similar to this one from my own collection...the photographs were taken by a Lt from A squadron.
