Default Look to me like

Covenanters front and rear, and 3 Valentines in the centre of the line.

Thanks!

The only one I can see is T 18383...when would that date to please? The shots I have seem to be at an engineering training school, with some wheeled vehicles, but mostly tanks.

Hi,
Valentine IIs in the middle by the look of them. Any idea of what is behind the first Covanentor?, it appears to have tracks.
Cheers,
Dave

Default Looks like a carrier to me,

as we are looking from the rear of the line. The fella leaning into it makes it look like a true Bren carrier, which has no rear armour on the driver's side.

Default In your pic,

You can see a bit of front skirt over the front idler, and top edge of the gunners armour, and a bit of track guard to the left of the soldier leanig into it.
