Looks like a 76mm Alvis Saladin turret to me.
I know that in the mid 1970's the Australian MOD bought a number of Alvis Scorpion turrets also for fitment to M113's.

Yes. The Aussies used the turrets from demobbed Saladins for these vehicles. Never heard of the Scorpion turrets being used, but I suppose it makes sense, as Saladin spares tend to be as rare as rocking-horse dung.
