Aut cum scuto aut in scuto
I wouldn't want to ride one of those iron coffins into combat. But at least they had a place to sleep that wasn't in the trenches.
It seems to be in remarkable shape.
The fumes were supposed to be choking, and the sound deafening
They also had a crew of 8 to 10 in there.
Is that the one that's in the National WWI Museum here in Kansas City? Sure looks the same.
This from the Wikipedia page:A Mark IV Female, D51: Deborah, was excavated at the village of Flesquières in France, in 1999. It had been knocked out by shell-fire at the Battle of Cambrai (1917) and subsequently buried when used to fill a crater. Badly damaged and corroded when rediscovered, Deborah has been stabilised and is now housed in a small museum at Flesquières, close to the graves of members of the crew.
