Mk V at Bellicourt
Permalink   


A friend of mine sent me this picture and the caption that goes with it.

"Battle of the St Quentin Canal (Saint-Quentin). Men of the American 30th Infantry Division at rest with German prisoners following the capture of Bellicourt, 29th September 1918. In the background are British Mark V Tanks with 'cribs' of the 8th Battalion, Tank Corps, which were one of four battalions of the V Tank Brigade allotted to the 5th Australian Division and American Corps for the operation."

Hello Ned,
Great picture. The second tank from the left is (as far as i can see) a Mk V *
It is the longer version. It does not need a crib to cross the trenches
Best regards,
Willem

Can you ask your friend for the Imperial War museum reference number?
