It's a Centurion Tank from a Cavalry Squadron of the then Strategic Command. It was summer 1968 in Hong Kong and the LF's (then 4RRF) were involved in a major joint exercise up in the New Territories. The hills in the background are in China. The exercise was I think at the end of the day just a touch of " Sabre Rattling " towards the Chinese.
I recall the photo well and remember thinking, " I wish the camera man would hurry up...my arse is burning!!!". It was a very hot day sat on a very hot tank! The photo appeared in the Bury Times.
