Looks like a British Cromwell tank

EDIT: Leyland A27M Cruiser Tank Mk.VIII Cromwell Mk.IV, like in this movie:

(rather complicated name)

"1010 Its nice to see that the producers went to the trouble of constructing replica German tanks and assault guns for the films...but even better (at least for me) is that they also went to the trouble of making replica British vehicles - notably several Cromwells (also based on the FV 432 APC?) seen during the Operation Market-Garden episode alongside the ubiquitous Shermans. DaveM
1010.01An update - the Cromwells were not modified FV432s, they were the were the genuine article. RR Services supplied two of the three Cromwell tanks used in the picture. These are genuine WW2 Cromwells that had been converted to Charioteers by the Finnish Army by fitting up-rated turrets and guns. A few years ago the Charioteers were re-imported from Finland and fell into RR Services hands. Original Cromwell turrets were obtained from British Army ranges and fitted. New Rolls meteor engines were installed at the same time as modifying hatches and other fittings back to original. The tricky part was getting the turret traverse and elevation mechanisms to work for the picture. The third Cromwell in the film is in fact a Centaur - same tank, different engine. DaveM "

in the series these tanks are referred to as belonging to the "Guards Armoured Division"...but the insignia of the black bull on yellow square is that of the 11th Armoured Division!!
