Hopefully the British don´t drink too much cidre .... the farmer might be a German agent trying to slow down the Alied advance with biological warfare .... Anyway: very nice scene, top paint work on tank and figures. Question: what are the markings on the turret for?

They were used by the Royal Marines Armored Support Group on D-Day.
The numbers on the turret were to provide a bearing for infantry outside the tank to be able to direct its main gun fire, as there is a telephone at the back for communication with the crew inside.

James put it perfectly. And you really have a lot of imagination, Neuling. Would you ever accept a drink from a stranger?
