Mark I ‘Male’ Tank of ‘C’ …

Mark I ‘Male’ Tank of ‘C’ Company that broke down crossing a British trench on its way to attack Thiepval on 25th September 1916 during the Battle of the Somme.

I love the little chickewire hats they gave these early models. The idea was that’d it’d bounce hand grenades off as the top armour was relatively thin.
