Has anybody seen this pic before or any like it?

I have seen pics of Mk V** bridgelayer, but not this one with its jib.

Quite a load put on the Bailey Bridge test section!!

The caption makes no sense, "2 Whippet Class 5" tanks, well there is only one tank on top and it's not a Whippet!

And to me the bottom one looks like a Mk V * (1 star). But did they gut it and fill it with iron/beams ? to increase it's weight..  Also I don't see any serial number on it.

Tank on top is an A10 Cruiser MkII tank.

It is a Mark V*. The picture is well known.

Sorry folks. I have made a mistake. This is indeed a Mark V**.

Gwyn, If it's well known - are there any other photos of it?

None that I have seen, at least not on this occasion.  There was only one Mark V** engineer tank and it's now preserved at Bovington.
