    It was also 100 years ago today, Sept 15 1916, that the first tanks went into battle at the Somme.

    Early in the morning Captain Howard "Morti" Mortimore commanded the crew of his Mark I rhomboid tank D1 "Daredevil" registration male 765 to advance. Issuing the first command in combat by a tank commander.
