The Battlefield Debut of the Tank, 1916

The Battlefield Debut of the Tank, 1916.

Good post with an introduction for the first use of tanks in battle, during the attack on Flers.  This was a few weeks before the Manchesters went over the top north of Flers, without tank support.

I have a feeling the first photos of tanks show Trones Wood in the background.
