The Great War, I was there - Part 26

DEM> ON MUD CLAIMS ONE MORE VICTIM The clinging mud that so seriously hampered men and machines in the shambles of the Flanders battlefields and the back areas has caught yet another victim here. This time it is an armoured car which has sunk axle- deep into the mud and slime of a road pulped by shell-fire. The vehicle is a 40-50 h.p.

Armour plate protected all vital parts, and the revolving turret carried a Vickers machine-gun. Imperial War Museum 10171 cL... __ ' J i iSl as##
