The Crusader on the bogged truck is 10th Hussars, 2 Armd Bde, 1 Armd Div. The nickname for these deception devices was Sunshield.

Default Tank Identification

Tanker Mike, as already stated in this post, the photographs are of British tanks. The first two are a Crusader and the the third is a Cruiser Mk I.

The third tank is an A9, quite unusual to see one of those fitted with a Sunshield, could have been a depot vehicle being used as a test-bed perhaps.
