only one question:

armed or unarmed ?
in 1944

I am really out of my league here – Napoleonic buff and only for the Peninsular War – but I recall it was at 2-man armored scout car, with one man using a Bren light machine gun. I recall it was easy to dismount.

It had no inherent weapon of its own.

To the Daimler question in this here bug: a Bren Gun is always an option in any year. I'ld be surprised to find a Boys ATG mounted in '44.

If you're interested in the Dingo top tip is to find David Fletcher's Tank Chat #29 on it on the Tank Museum's YouTube channel

The base armament was a removable cal. 0.303 (7.7 mm) Bren gun, with a dozen spare magazines.

The Tank Chats are recommended for watching. Entertaining and informative.

With limited armour and a dozen spare magazines, this vehicle should not really be expected to engage in protracted firefights.

Which as a reconnaissance vehicle, that would not be expected.

The Dingo was equipped with an efficient muffler for the purpose of avoiding notice and having to do any fighting.

Contrary to German reconnaissance units which were expected to probe defenses and even push though if the defense was not sufficient to stop them.

In and out unnoticed was the ideal.
