Tank Corps Memorial Pozières France

Tank Memorial Pozieres/ G Sutton 21 Oct 2018

The Pozières Tank Memorial commemorates the tank corps. Tanks were first used in this area of the Somme in September 1916.

The memorial was officially unveiled by Lieutenant-General Sir Thomas L. N. Morland, July 1922.

Early tank models surround the obelisk. 

The Tank Corps Memorial is on road D929 from Albert to Bapaume. It is approximately 6 K northeast of Albert, France.

Here's a video clip I took of the memorial.
