Both bridge marking 6
A9 Cruiser MkI- T7196-7270 Bridge marking 13
A11 Matilda I- T3433-3542. T5551-T5610,T8101-8119. Bridge marking 12 (?)
A12 MkII Matilda II- T6729-T6868, T7271-7350,T7351-7390,T10034-10203
(The WD decided to serial number MkII,MkIII and IV plus the Scorpion and Baron, irrespective of their mark. I would settle for the lower numbers for France. T6906 Greenock, and T9732 Galahad are the two I can vouch for at the moment. I will keep looking for the other numbers for each of the named vehicles. All names began with G.) Bridge marking 25
