During WWI, new weapons were developed to get out of the impasses, such as the famous British Mark IV tank.
The colour is usually decisive on the front where they were deployed, the signs or colours on the tank gave the battalion to which they belonged.
With this lamp I try to portray two MarkIVs. The brown tank symbolizes the Somme tank with a Royal Tank Regiment Officer's Dress Collar Badge, Royal Tank Regiment Officer's Button and a Royal Tank Shoulder Title.
The other is a green Mark IV often used in the Ypres region.
The D 29 tank with red triangle is placed in front of the POND Farm. It was in 2012 that during working activities on the field, a piece of caterpillar was found. Next to this tank the insignia of the Gloucestershire regiment that finally conquered the farm on 22 August 1918. It is a Gloucestershire Regiment Officer's Dress Collar Badge, a Gloucestershire Constabulary Button and Duke of Cornwall's Light Infantery (Gloster) Shoulder Tittle.
On 28 September 1918 Belgian troops finally conquered the Pond Farm. Their cap badge was confirmed here as well.
Special is that I made the barrels and machine guns of the tanks of copper from British 8-pounder shells.
