The AEC Mk.I armoured car
Apparently by the time that the British arrived in Tunisia, they were using the big AEC Mk.I armoured cars. Duncan Crow's book has a photo of AEC Mk.I's from The Royal Dragoons arriving in Enfidaville. The great size is evident from the man walking in the background. The Mk.I had a Valentine turret with a 2pdr ATG and a Besa MG. Apparently is was only later in 1942 that the AEC starting to enter service, along with the Humber Mk.III.
