It is Ted thanks. Its  modelled  it on a Mk4 tank . My great uncle fred was in one of those first members of the tank corp that rumbled onto the battlefield  at 4 mph, over half  broke down. They have these wicker men all around the park

Thank you . Its something that shouldn't  be forgotten. To many lives were lost or damaged pointlessly. My grandfather was lucky , he was wounded nearly loosing his arm  , captured and spent the rest of the war as prisoner  of war. The uncle in the tank corp died in the last month of the war while they were arguing  about the fine print on the end of the war. My wifes grandfather was gassed just about survived  but her grandmother died in the flu pandemic  that killed millions , The grandfather died a few years later due to the effects of the gassing  and my mother in law and brother went into childrens homes and didn't find each other for nearly 55 years..

But  the same mistakes are never learned and we keep sending ill equiped  people out to fight and don't  look, after them properly when they come back
