Hi my name is Ash, im 42 from North Wales.  I'm disabled and use a wheelchair.   I'm interested im military history especially world war one.    I go to military museums sometimes with my friend and he knows about tanks and aircraft from ww1 and ww2.    His knowledge amazes me but he tells me he's forgotten a lot over the years.  I wish i had knowledge about tanks, i've recently bought a book called Tank Hunters by Craig Moore,  im reading about the mk5 tank of ww1 now.    What are the important bits of information that i need to know as it's interesting?   What im trying to do is, pick out information from my book that i want to remember, like this for the mk1 tank,

First tank ever built

Trials - January 1916 at Hatfield Park

150 built, 75 male 75 female

8 man crew - 4 to drive 4 to work the guns

first used in Battle of Fleurs Courcelette - 15 september 1916
