Engineer Equipment

D-7 Armoured Bulldozer. If you look closely to the left side on the front of the engine compartment, you can see the “landing serial” of this Dozer written in chalk. With this information you can determine the ‘landing craft” and possibly the unit that this Dozer belonged to

Sherman Flail. These vehicles were operated by the 22nd Dragoons, on the Canadian Beaches

Trying to find out a bit more about the Armoured Dozer in the picture that belonged to British Royal Engineers 59 Mechanical Equipment Platoon.
Never seen this Dozer before in any other pictures.

Would anyone know if there are other pictures of this same machine?
Also. Is this a Canadian library picture & is there a "Date taken" for this picture?
