Okay, it's post-WWI, but intriguing nevertheless...

Yes, I wrote that piece pleased you guys liked it.

I had been looking for it for ages without success.

The only remaining issue is that in a meeting with the tank board it is said that an entire group of tanks were designed by Fosters but at the moment this is the only one which can be substantiated or seen.

The tank board minutes aren't always that clear on issues like that.

Argh sorry I replied to the piece and then realised I wasn't logged in so will appear as 'anonymous'. Anyway, was just trying to say thank you.
I'm still looking for more from the tank board on these designs. - Vollketten

Something new I stumbled across today relating to this design by the way:

This is from a review by the firm of Wm. Foster and Co. Ltd. of an April 1941 report of combat in North Africa and subsequent examination of Italian and German tanks.

I know he's talking about the WW2 era M.13/41 here but his reflection back to the original design his firm made I thought was interesting.
