'Our whippet tanks dash thro' the mud caked battlefields and penetrate the German lines at Morcourt, 1918'

Stereoscopic photograph, World War One, Western Front (1914-1918), 1918.

The Whippet was a medium tank designed to be faster and more manoeuvrable that the existing British tanks of the time. It was also the first tank with a separate turret. The Whippet first saw action in March 1918 and performed well for the remainder of the war, proving adept at exploiting any breaks in the German lines.

From a collection of 96 stereoscopic photographs entitled 'The Great War' including the official series.
