November 3, 2017

100 years on from the Battle of Cambrai, The Tank Museum presents a 3 part documentary on the moment the Tank Corps delivered one of the greatest advances of the First World War.

Curator David Willey explains how the fledgling Tank Corps faced an uncertain future, having failed to live up to earlier expectations – and takes a detailed look inside the Mark IV tank.

As the regimental museum of the Royal Tank Regiment, The Tank Museum is using the World War One centenary to draw attention to the struggle, sacrifice and ingenuity of the early tank men.
