      Minor changes to the Forum   12/12/17

      We have altered the structure of the Home Fronts and Uniforms, Arms, Insignia, Equipment & Medals boards. We have removed the sub-category headings and now each board is more visible and easier to find. We have also renamed "About this website" and "Using theTechnology" to make it clearer where to post questions about the GWF website. We have also put a link ot the forum Rules on the main menu at the top to make them easier to find - particularly the section regarding requesting look ups on subscription sites such as Ancestry. Finally, for those who visit Skindles, there is a pinned post there detailing some changes to it.   Regards The GWF Admin Team

They keep on a shuffling along...

This has quite possibly been spotted and even posted by others but if so, "Search" failed to find it... Seen on a German internet selling site - and shown here for reference and elucidation (no connection to the seller and not buying it either!)... Being mindful (and uncertain) of GWF rules, and so not posting the link, suggesting only that it can be found (I guess!) through: Panzer-Tank-auf-Schlachtfeld-in-Frankreich-1-Weltkrieg

 

So, any comments from you tankies? Tanks are a minor interest of mine as granddad was re-posted to the TC in early 1918 and was 'demobbed' from them... And I guess he never got into one of these as so late - but he did send grandma a photograph of this type of tank in Palestine (now lost, sorry)!

Long-barreled 6 pounder and steering tail would seem to identify this as a Mk.I?

 

Looks as if half the steering tail got shot off - not sure if that would seriously disable the tank. Later omission of this assembly would suggest not.

Looks remarkably like and Airfix model to me. For a picture taken on the battlefield in 1916 it looks astoundingly clear.

The tank is Creme de Menthe which fought at Courcelette on 15 September 1916 and managed to return to its base despite a damaged tail. She was next in action on 26 September where she became ditched, albeit after she had cleared Thievpal Chateau.
