Anyone have a photo of this vehicle?

I know only 32 were built by the workshops of the French 2nd Armoured Div. and they served from Normandy till the end of the war after which they survivers were shipped to indo-China and used in a ground support role with armoured plate added.

I`ve got the photos off the Milicast website and some other kit photos off the net, but I can`t find a wartime actual photo!!!!

Any help appreciated.

Richard
