Your top photo is probably of Mark IIs Tim. It’s taken in Syria & the Mk I didn’t see service outside South Africa. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Deir_ez-Zor Original photo is in IWM collection.

That last photo has been suggested to be a pair of Dutch Mark IIIs in post war service in the DEI. They were supplied in 1941 to the Dutch East Indies Army, captured, repainted and used by the Japanese & then recaptured and used again by the Dutch. The original IWM caption apparently has them in RAF Regiment service though! https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:IWM-CF-973-Armoured-cars-Batavia-19451219.jpg

For all I know, the Indonesians may have used them post independence too.


Another photo of the pair.

Ok, so what are these?
