Tanks in Gibraltar

Dear Sirs

I hope someone can help. I am looking for some photo of the Sherman tanks that were located at Europa Point , Gibraltar during the late 50's and 60's. I have been informed locally that they were once part of a playground for MOD children at Europa and although many people here remember playing / climbing on them as a child no picture has emerged.
I would be happy if only the they could be seen in the background.

Maybe some ex members of Somersets or Duke of Cornwall regiments remember them?
