Noisy, hot, cramped and filled with exhaust fumes, the tanks of the First World War weren’t comfortable, but they were imposing to the enemy. In July, 1918, on a devastated battlefield, thirteen Australian soldiers went out
across no-man’s land, and returned with a tank.
Almost 100 years later, this tank survives,
‘Mephisto’. It’s rare, it’s big, it’s here.
Come to Canberra, and visit MEPHISTO,
at the Australian War Memorial.
