British Tank in Flanders

This memorial to the Tank Corps commemorates their role in the Third Battle of Ypres but is part of a larger project to get a large scale replica of a First World War tank operational. The project has a fascinating blog that is worth reading and shows this framework tank replica going into place.

Located on the road between St Julien – Vancouver Corner and Poelcapelle and while it appears to be a temporary structure it apparently will be there for some time.
