    Have checked through the National Army Museum collection of 3rd / 4th County London Yeomanry photos I came across a couple of possible names.
    3rd and 3rd / 4th CLY do not seem to have a fixed name location point they can be on either left or right upper or lower front of the turret. I have even found a B Sqn name which is after the sqn symbol at the rear of the turret. With the majority of tank photos being front on often makes identification difficult.
    County London Yeomanry seem to use an unusual range of name subjects.
    Any thoughts or comments appreciated.

    Photo 104351 ref NAM.1975-03-63-14-136 is I think AMARYLLIS - 3rd CLY
    Photo 105535 ref NAM.1975-03-63-20-181 is I think BAHAMUT - 3rd / 4th CLY

    Cheers

    'The CO's tank', 1945
    Photograph by Major Wilfred Herbert James Sale, MC, 3rd/4th County of London Yeomanry (Sharpshooters), World War Two, North West Europe, 1945.
    This Sherman tank belonged to Lieutenant-Colonel WAC Anderson DSO who was in command of the regiment when the war ended. 3rd/4th County of London Yeomanry ended the conflict near Hamburg having fought its way across Germany with 7th Armoured Division.
    From an album containing 198 photographs and captions compiled by Major W H J Sale, MC, 3rd/4th County of London Yeomanry (Sharpshooters).
    NAM Accession Number
    NAM. 1975-03-63-22-188

    Edit:

    This was a 24th L reference... I had wondered if WAC Anderson might have "kept" a prior 24th L tank name...

    All the original Sale negatives are now back with The Sharpshooters.. Dan Taylor is/was sorting through them to try and get an index. It appears the NAM kept their copies the Sale 3 CLY photos Home Page - The Sharpshooters
