Probably because there were so many of them, as much as for any other reason, Light Tanks Mark VIB turned up all over the place, although they were of palpably little use. Indeed, one even accompanied B Squadron, 4th Royal Tank Regiment, to Eritrea at the start of 1941. This squadron, otherwise equipped with 16 A12 Matilda tanks, was sent there to bolster an Indian infantry force that was attempting to defeat the Italian garrison. com the Italians, and although they were in action on a number of occasions they spent a lot of their time moving from place to place with great difficulty along mountain tracks that severely tested the transmission of the infantry tanks.

The turret has been traversed to the rear and it is possible to make out the turret-mounted spotlight alongside the gun mantlet. The arm of service marking for 4th Hussars is the number 51 in white on a red square. 43 Tanks Mark VIB, Universal Carriers and 15cwt trucks carrying 2-pdr antitank guns was provided by the 7th Australian Divisional Cavalry Regiment, which had the difficult task, pending an expected German landing, of trying to simulate a much larger force by patrolling all over the island with crews wearing different hats.

A short while later, on 11 May 1941, C Squadron, the 3rd Hussars, with 16 Light Tanks Mark VIB, was sent to bolster the defences of Crete. It was another forlorn hope for the 3rd Hussars, who were obliged to destroy all their surviving tanks by the end of the month, while the survivors escaped from the island as best they could. Nine A12 Matilda tanks of 7th RTR were also sent to Crete, but in the long run had little to show for their efforts and also had to be abandoned. Malta, on the other hand, was a relatively peaceful location, if you overlook the air raids.
