Image Description

British Mark V Tanks with crib fanciness pictured here at Bellicourt, 29 September, 1918. Crib fancines were used to help them pass rough and awkward terrain such as crossing trenches and although cumbersome they did prove useful, especially when crossing the Hindenburg line.

This artistic work created by the United Kingdom Government is in the public domain.
This is because it is one of the following:
1. It is a photograph created by the United Kingdom Government and taken prior to 1 June 1957; or
2. It was commercially published prior to 1965; or
3. It is an artistic work other than a photograph or engraving (e.g. a painting) which was created by the United Kingdom Government prior to 1965.

HMSO has declared that the expiry of Crown Copyrights applies worldwide.
