Featured in magazine Le Miroir 7/7/1918 is this image of HEDDA I'd not seen before

search of this forum and reverse google search yielded nothing on the tank - I can't tell there is she's been battle damaged or just undergoing maintenance

Details here - scroll down 4 places: https://sites.google.com/site/landships/home/lists/beute-panzers

The headline above says German tank captured at Fort de la Pompelle. One assumes that these are the photos taken while the tank was derelict.

The full caption reads "Tank shown from the side and from the front - Interior of the tank. The above photographs show the four German tanks that our troops succeeded in capturing near Reims on June 1st. That day, a violent enemy attack succeeded in ejecting us from the fort de la Pompelle onto the railway; but an immediate counter attack by our troops retook the fort, which we still hold, fully reestablished our positions, and allowed us to capture 200 prisoners and 4 tanks."

(On page 4 of this issue of Le Miroir are a couple of shots of the Schneider CD.)
