Just logged on at a pub in Newquay, Cornwall(well a chap needsR&R) more great pictures. So what is the story behind the number plate? Any pictures of the car on the day of trouble with a clear picture of the plate? If so would make a great tale for next year.

Yesderday I spent a few hours in the "ship wreck museum". Oddly in the 1st aid and rescue section there was mention of WW1 ambulances! Not much to add in the way of pictures here but the humble WW1 ambulance is remembered in the most unlikely places.

Scalyback,

Yes, the bottom photo in post # 494, shows the number plate clearly. This photo, was taken on the day of the assassination from the other side of the road to the photo above it.

I am pleased the photographs are of use to your project, I was particularly pleased with the photo in post # 508, as you do not usually get to see good detailed views of the back of the vehicle.

Regards,

LF

There was controversy surrounding tank No.113 ' Julian ', which during WW1 had been seen on streets throughout Britain during wartime fund raising events, and then in 1919, tank No.113 was again on the streets, this time in Glasgow, as part of the Government's actions against strikers.

A report on which, was contained in the Glasgow Herald and Evening News.

LF

Armed troops escorting a tank on the Trongate, January 1919.

" Alarmed by the Forty Hours Strike called on the 27th January, the Government sent English troops to Glasgow to keep the peace and make sure that essential services were not disrupted. Six tanks and 100 motor lorries accompanied the troops, and they were sent to strategic points across the city on 1 February in a calculated show of force.

The strikers began to drift back to work from 4 February and six days later the Strike Committee issued a statement recommending that men should return to work on the 12th. The tanks had been withdrawn from the city several days earlier."

From the euphoria of a tank taking part in the Lord Mayor's Show procession, to the stark reality of tank warfare.
