Tank

Directly across from the Old Windmill memorial outside Pozieres is the tank memorial commemorating the first use of tanks in battle. British Mark I tanks were used at the Battle of Flers-Courcelette (part of the Battle of the Somme) on 15 September 1916, with mixed results; many broke down, but nearly a third succeeded in breaking through.
