TQ3179 : British Tank Mark V

taken 8 years ago, near to Lambeth, Great Britain

British Tank Mark V
British Tank Mark V
Photographed at the Imperial War Museum, London. The British first introduced tanks during the middle phase of the Battle of the Somme, in 1916. The Mark V was a development of the original tank design, and saw service towards the end of WWI (1914-18).

Whilst tanks were not an immediate success, the sight of these lumbering beasts must have put fear into the German troops. Certainly by the start of WWII, in 1939, the development of tanks had revolutionised ground warfare.
