  6. All of the tanks in the photos were MkII's belonglng to 11 Co., D Bn. HBMGC and were knocked out on 11/4/17 during the 1st Battle of Bullecourt. The tank in the first image is 799 (D30), seen between the first and second line of the Balcony Trench system, NW of Queant. The middle tank is 586 (D28), destroyed just in front of the first Hindenberg Line trench south of Riencourt. And the last photo is 796 (D23), and is seen abandoned just in front of the Hindenberg Line trench at the SE corner of Bullecourt village. Many thanks to Rhomboid of the landships forum.
