Hi Stephen Chris.

The original painting hung in the dining room officers mess 1RTR.

Nice to see this picture again Steve, thanks for posting.

It’s been on the forum before, Stephen has a print and shared it as it was pertinent to my Mk IV build. The subject is Mk IV no. 4066 on 24th April 1918 during, as you say, the first tank on tank action. The tank was commanded by a Lt Francis (Frank) Mitchell, who was born here in Guernsey.

One of these days I will finish my model..... :oops:

Indeed. It's almost impossible to photograph in my workshop because of the light reflections on the glass but I've had a go at removing the worst reflections in Photoshop. All the best.
