A small memorial dedicated to the tankers who fought in the First World War. It will take you just a few minutes to stop and think about the use of this technology over 100 years ago and of the men who rode in them. Worth the short stop.

This memorial was set up near the spot where the tank was first used, by the British. It's right at the side of the road and there is a spot to pull into if you're driving. There are four miniature tanks on the memorial which I quite liked. It's important to remember all those who served in these machines. Having been in a WW1 vehicle at the Bovington tank museum I can only imagine what it was like to be in one at the Somme.

Small memorial to tankers, many of whom perished, when the first tanks were used in this area over 100 years ago. The landscape has obviously changed alot since the war, but it's not hard to picture dozens of tanks trying to navigate a muddy nightmare on this hill.

Small pulloff lane available to park, and it's directly across from the windmill memorial site. Just be careful crossing the road as cars might not see you, or they might not stop.

The Tank Corps Memorial is another lovely memorial, this time to the Tank Corps. Tanks were introduced into the war on the 15th of September, 1916, as part of the Battle of the Somme. Unfortunately many of these tanks broke down very quickly and hindered rather than help in the battle. However some did actually do what they were meant to do! Later in the war more tanks were introduced that were better than the original versions. The Memorial commemorates those who used the tanks in this and other battles. Being there is quite a moving experience. This Memorial is conveniently located opposite the Windmill Memorial. Worth a visit if you are going that way.

Just along the Bapaume-Albert road you find many tokens and monuments of the events, the huge battles of the Great War. To place this monument at the exact location where battle tanks were used for the very first time in recent history is a good service for the tank-freaks from all over the world.

This memorial is opposite the Windmill Memorial and could easily be overlooked.
A simple memorial to the machine that has changed warfare.

Walked around the site, read the information board, so helpful to read the history. A lovely stop. The gentle breeze is so nice but 100 + years ago it was a different story.

An excellent tribute to the Tank Corps. Well looked after as are all the war memorials. Very informative and emotional reading. Great for children to learn about the past. We only stopped by chance and so glad we did and pay our respects.

Visited this memorial as part of a Great War Tour with the disabled veterans charity Not Forgotten Association.We were on route to the Thievpal memorial to the 72000 soldiers with no known grave from the village of Albert on the Somme .
The tank corp memorial sits just off the Albert to Bauperne road and with no cover and can be very rainy and windswept on a bad day.Myself and another guest of the coach party were ex Tankies and chose to lay a wreath and pay our respects to the lads who gave their lives a hundred years ago in WW1.
