whether you have any information's about this type light tank used by at 2nd Tank Battalion?

1. I know: Chinese 2nd Tank Battalion during second battle of Shanghai (1937) had 17 x Vickers F/E Light Tank, 8 x Carden-Lloyd Mk VI Tankeete, 4 x Renault ZB Light Tank and (peculiarly it being interested in me) 4 x Vickers-Carden-Loyd Model 1936 Light Tanks.
This battalion fight agains Japanese between 13 August 9 November 1937. And next he was withdrawn since he lost 50 % vehicles.
I know: IJA captured or destroyed approx. 10 Vickers F/E Tank. I have many photos in Chinese Vickers F/E Light Tank captured by IJA at Shanghai.
Unfortunatelly I don't have not a single photo Vickers-Carden-Loyd Model 1936 Light Tanks captured by IJA, or used by Kuomintang. I don't know even, whether all 4 vehicles were lost during fights about Shanghai in 1937. Perhaps some vehicle survived the battle? Whether anybody knows, how were painted these vehicles used by in 2nd Tank Battalion?
The topic is complicated because: for example - PzKfz I Ausf A Light Tank used in 1st Tank Battalion, were being painted as far in three varieties.
Maybe anybody knows, or have some informations, or photographs this type tank used by Chinese or captured / destroyed by IJA at Shanghai?

I will be grateful for the help.
