Celebrating 100 Years of the Tank

Tank 100 Vignette

To commemorate the first tank engagement, which occurred at the Battle of Flers, in northwestern France, The Tank Museum is holding a special event on September 17th, 2016, called TANK 100. According to the web site, “TANK 100 is being held in conjunction with The Royal Tank Regiment and will feature living history, commemorative tank displays, talks and more.

Visitors can expect to see a display of modern British Army vehicles as well as a variety of historic vehicles from The Tank Museum collection, to exemplify the legacy of those first tanks and the men who fought in them.

There will also be a First World War mock battle, including pyrotechnics, living history reenactors and an aircraft display from the Great War Display Team. The arena displays will end with a short commemorative service, led by the Royal Tank Regiment.”
