I like the ambush idea Pinky. Still, there may have been a lot of bored soldiers around shortly after the war. I think on balance the accepted wisdom is probably correct, although so far I remain in the 'don't know' camp (probably by myself!)

On ML / Armorama , the thought that it was painted after it was knocked out was discussed  .  The majority figure , that with the bow MG still installed and a whole lot of removable metal pieces  people could sell for scrap after the war , still on the vehicle  ( U tow hooks , fenders , wheels and even track ) that it was KO'ed in that paint scheme . After 70 years the discussion continues....

 There were a couple of nice images of British armour (Sherman & A Crusader) in Tunisia & Sicily in 1943 in The Guardian this week. (The Sherman has another in its bewildering array of track shoes.)
