F Battalion Tanks at Cambrai 27 November 1917:

https://sites.google.com/site/landships/home/narratives/1917/cambrainarratives/16-and-17-companies-27-november-1917

 

So they were north of Bourlon Wood.

 

I just noticed you knew it was tank F27, I thought it was a photo of F13 and F4. It more or less matches the photo on the site here.

 

If they were buried in situ by the Germans then you are looking for Tank Corps unknowns that were recovered from 57c.E.11.d or 12.cSailly [Cambrai] Intelligence Target Map 25-9-18 That would place F27 at about 57c.F.12.c.1.8.

 

There are some top-notch tank people in the GWF, hope they see your post!

Hi Many thanks for the reply.
