Trooper Harold (George) Crodden France 1940

I am researching the wartime service in the 10th Hussars of my late father-in-law Trooper Harold E Crodden who served with the 10th from 1938 (posted from the 7thH), saw service with the BEF in France, 20th May 1940 as I believe as a Light tank MkVI driver until 10th June 1940, when he was badly wounded and repatriated via Cherbourg on June 16th 1940. Does anyone remember him, or can help with info. about the action the 10th was involved with on June 10th 1940.
I am in the process of building a 1/35th scale model of a MKVI Light tank, and would like to find out his squadron and tank markings, colours etc. Any help would be gratefully received, or if I could be pointed in the right direction for info. I do have two good quality photos of him on parade with his entire B squadron tanks, probably taken in 1939.
