The A13 Cruiser Mk.IV and A10 Cruiser Mk.II
The battles around Sidi Rezegh seem to have marked the departure from the field of the Cruiser Mk.IV and Cruiser Mk.II tanks which were still in service with the 7th Armoured Brigade, up to that time. Wikipedia has a page the A13 that seems reasonably accurate (Cruiser Mk.IV). I had trouble finding the A10 Cruiser Mk.II page, as my search wasn't using the Roman numeral II correctly. They also have a reasonable photo, although grainy, of a Cruiser Mk.IIA. It is possible that a few Cruiser Mk.IIACS (close support) tanks might have survived after this date.
