Response to Guess.

I've been doing a bit more digging- far from being a one-off, it seems it was a workshops mod. I've also found at least two tanks that were done, both 1 CS (upgraded) variants- 'Bushmills' and 'Ashbourne', and both North Irish Horse. (There is a third pic, but I can't identify the tank or the census number.

If you look at the commanders hatches, you'll see that they are set in a disc with the commanders vision periscope. It's that disc that was removed. Maybe the intention was for the Churchill to have a cupola, but the exigencies of war meant it was fitted with the easier to produce flat hatches. That aside, that sort of work would have been beyond the LAD's capability and would've had to have been done in Workshops. Which means there must have been some authority to do it.

So far it seems to have been a NIH mod- I wonder if they confined it to the early models, or troop commanders vehicles, or even close support variants. I've not come across a gun tank with it yet, but who knows?
