    Slide 12 is interesting. Presumably a captured British tank in German markings?

    I'm amazed at the crater in #9. 10,000 dead from one explosion. I can't even imagine.

    Very nice to see.

    Looks like a British Mk.IV Male by the look of the gun. The Germans captured a number after the Somme and Cambrai and impressed them into service, but lack of numbers and good tactical doctrine meant they weren't effectively used. The German A7V tank was built in very small numbers (only 20) as a result of the number of British tanks the Germans had.

    Captain Ross-Smith (left) and Observer in front of a Modern Bristol Fighter, 1st Squadron A.F.C. Palestine, February 1918. This image was taken using the Paget process, an early experiment in color photography. # main_.jpg
