Postcard Showing a Pair of Mathilda II Infantry Tanks

I couldn't find the location that seems to be mentioned on the description in German. Camouflage of the tanks looks to be typical British desert type? Is anyone able interpret the caption and determine the location Gretnja?  tongue  Barron

That is what I thought too, but I don't know if Mathildas were sent to Russia along with Spitfires and Hurricanes? I would expect them to have repainted the camouflage to the typical dark green with Red Stars so they didn't get shot by friendly fire! hmm Barron
