This is a rare one. It´s not a Mark V, but a Mark V*

The 9646 joined the war at 28th sept. 1918 and came to the french forces.

The Mark V* was 1,60m longer than the Mark V. That was necessary to cross the larger trenches in the late war. And these Mark V* could transport an entire platoon in it!

Hello!

The tanks were hit November 27, 1917 west of Bourlon Wood during the battle of Cambrai

We see F30 (Flaming Fire II - serial number 2879). This tank later was in use as a german captured tank, called "Hydra"
