That's a standard flag for a wehrmacht infantry batallion. It's called a "Bataillonsfahn" (Batallion flag). [1]

Different arms of the wehrmacht had different background colours. The infantry flags were always white.

These flags were use from 1936 to 1945. [2]

Thanks. That's what this thread is meant to be. That's a perfect answer, just what I was looking for.

I would say its some form of AA gun, shells I noticed were a bit small for an AT gun.

Maybe.. The only Cromwell (not Centaur) with a 6-pounder was the Cromwell I which had a production number of 357. Compare that to the Cromwell IV with almost 2,000 models produced.

I think (just a guess) they didn't used them in Normandy, they all wanted the multi-purpose 75mm gun.

A Cromwell with a howitzer is a Centaur, not a Cromwell.

Their are Cromwells with the 95MM CS gun. These where called Cruiser Mk VIII, A27M, Cromwell VI.

The centaur was used in Normandy. But only their. The Cruiser Mk VIII, A27M, Cromwell VI was used more later on (Operation market garden, liberation of Belgium)

There is one question that I always wanted to ask; which English regiment saw most action during WWII? Was there an English regiment that served in North Africa, Italy and Normandy?

Thanks, VonMudra! I'm sorry that I forgot to specify that I've been looking for an infantry regiment. The cold I contracted over the weekend has really made me dizzy. But anyhow, I managed to find what I was looking for.

Was the army issue .455 Webley cartridge strong enough to kill/disable with one shot?
