The Tank Tour

TanksInset3
One hundred years ago, the world was at war and it had become a war that neither side could win. The barbed wire and trenches had created a stalemate and both sides were desperately searching for a machine which could break the trenches and give them back their lost mobility.

The answer to the deadlock of the Great War was the tank – and the first ever tank was invented by a small agricultural engineering company in Lincoln.

The new machine, invented by William Foster and Co Ltd, was first used in September 1916 and by 1918 had become an indispensable part of the army.

It would go on to help break the German defences and bring an end to the war. To mark this centenary, an illustrated lecture and film show will tell the story of this novel Lincoln invention and how it evolved during the war.

Richard Pullen and Andrew Blow‘s ‘Tank Tour’ will explain the background to the tank story and the county’s role in creating it.

Richard Pullen is a military historian and author, whose own grandfather worked on the production of the first tanks at Foster and Co during WW1. “The story of the first tanks is a real Lincolnshire saga.

On Monday 29th Richard came in to Studio 1 to talk to  Dave Holmes about The Tank Tour, below are the tour dates and venues
