Thought I'd give it another try to see if anybody cares for images here. These are from ebay, I am not connected to the sellers. Regards, Pat

Thanks Pat for another fascinating collection.

The second tank abandoned on the Bapaume road looks like it's named Hyaena, while the two tanks destroyed together in the woods look like the much-photographed G Battalion tanks.

As for the tank about to be converted to a command post - shades of Deborah?

..The two tanks along the road are not the same. The first is a male while the second is clearly a female. Also note the vehicle to the left rear in the second photograph with the female MkIV. It is a K-Flak; a Daimler M1914 m. Kp 7,7cm BAK. Though ignored in British accounts of the Cambrai attack, a number of these vehicles rushed to the breakthrough point, and knocked out more than 50 MkIVs; doing much to blunt the tank assault.

Jack, of course you're right: One is a male and one is a female tank so they cannot be the same vehicle. I didn't look close enough when posting the links. Thanks for pointing this out and also for the info on the German truck. Regards, Pat

Nice pics!
The two tanks destroyed together was photographied in the Bourlon wood. The first is identified as Grasshopper, I don't remember the name of the second one.
