    90 years ago...The first successful use of tanks in a combined arms operation, the British attack demonstrated that the Hindenburg Line could be penetrated, while the German counter attack showed the value of new infantry tactics that would later be part of the Kaiserschlacht. Liddell Hart called the battle "one of the landmarks in the history of warfare, the dawn of a new epoch."

    ...and the last station for nearly 100.000 anglo-german soldiers, I salute the Fallen and regret that so many people had to die in the name of the progress
    and on the behalf of the bloody politians :cry:

    For some reason the Memorial picture sometimes does not appear so I'm posting again!
    I think the ghosts of the dead Tankies are messing about!
