Gareth Davies Posted 16 November , 2013 Share Posted 16 November , 2013 Does anyone know the first time these names were used: Ajax was on 2676/A26 in 1 Coy A Bn at Cambrai, I can't find any record of the name in use at Ypres. I can't find Badger but I am pretty sure it was used in the GW. Cyclops was on 2059/C39 in 8 Coy C Bn at Ypres in Aug 17. Dreadnaught was on 2026/D21 in 12 Coy D Bn at Ypres in Sep 17 and Dreadnaught II was on 2073/D21 at Ypres in Oct 17. Egypt was on 2817/E51 in 15 Coy E Bn at Ypres in Sep 17. Falcon was on 2717/F13 in 16 Coy f Bn at Ypres on 31 Jul 17. So Ajax, Cyclops, Dreadnaught, Egypt and Falcon were all used by tanks after the formation of the Tank Corps on 27 Jul 17. But were these names in use before that date? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
