Looks like British Vickers Mk VI tank.
Perhaps in Greece. Crete? Any villages there with similar name?

Initially I thought it was in North Africa, but that row of trees on the horizon put me off.
If we become increasingly humble about how little we know, we may be more eager to search.

Thanks Greg, yes definitely a Mk VIb. And definitely France 1940, based on the tank markings. Was hoping the first few words could be deciphered and provide the village or town location....
