British-tanks--advance-on-Vimy-Ridge--Ju

It might be a beginner's question, but can you i.d. this Mk II allocated to the Canadians at Vimy? Number on side is 79-something, maybe 791/793/794/795. All information v welcome. Sorry to trouble you. I have tried.

12 Company, D Bn., HBMGC had 4 MkII male tanks at Vimy: as noted above, 791 (D42), 793 (D41), 794 (D44) and 795 (D46). I don't think that the tank in the photo is 791, since a photo of that tank at Vimy shows the serial number clearly. It looks most like 794 to me, but it might be 795.

Looks like 794 to me from the little that you can see of the third digit:
