4RTR, tank names, WESTERN DESERT, WWII

#1
I am trying to find out specific tank names (and if possible which Sqn they belonged to) of 4RTR in the Western desert during WWII.

I am specifically interested in the period when 4RTR was part of 32nd Tank Brigade and fought in Matilda tanks.

Can anyone help?

I can supply all names from 1978 which are listed in the Regiment's Compendium of Facts (4th ed.) some are listed as having been used back then but there was a big shake up in vehicle names after WW2.

Jan - May 1941 B Sqn was in Erittrea, Abyssinia as part of % Indian Div.
Feb 1941 the rest of 4RTR arrived in Egypt equipped with matildas and the regiment was suspended 20 June 1942 when Tobruk ewas overrun.
1 March 1945. 4RTR resurrected from 144 RAC equipped with Buffaloes.

It is the time when 4RTR were equiped with Matilda's that I am interested in.

For some reason I cannot download onto the computer I have.
pm me your email and I will send it to you.

Had another look now and the book does not list them. Only found this:
