The other advantage of being in a tank museum was of course the chance to look at the tanks "up close and personal". The First World War Hall has got quite a few tanks including a Mark IV and a Mark V, as well as a Mark II and a Mark V**. Highlight of the weekend for me was the chance to climb inside the Mark IV and sit in the drivers seat. It was interesting to see how small it was inside, and to realise how little they could see of what was going on outside the tank. I took loads of photos of course, and will post a few of them here.
In our game we were using the excellent new vacform trench system by Early War Miniatures:
In the next post I'll include a few pictures of the exhibits in the museum!
