Special: Battle of Flers Courcelette

One century ago, in September 1916, the French villages of Flers and Courcelette witnessed a momentous event – it was the very first time in history of warfare that tanks were used in combat! The idea to develop armoured combat vehicles, or ‘land battleships’ as it were, came as a response to the rigid World War I reality of trench warfare. The British Landships Committee wanted a vehicle capable of breaking through fortified positions and trenches, thus breaking the stalemate situation prevalent on the battlefields of World War I. The outcome of the development process initiated in the summer of 1915 was the Gun Carrier Mark I. Even though the plans were to utilise the tanks in a mass scale attack on the opening day of the Battle of Somme, the manufacturers were not able to prepare the required number of vehicles in time. As a result, the unleashing of this new weapon had to be postponed for an additional 10 weeks. On 15th September 1916, the decision was made to use the total of 49 available vehicles in a combined attack with infantry and artillery in an attempt to break the German defense lines. Even though no breakthrough had been achieved, the operation resulted in the capture of the villages of Courcelette, Martinpuich and Flers, and pushed the frontline forward by over 2,300 metres.

This weekend, we would like to commemorate this milestone in the history of warfare by launching a special event. Here is what you can expect:
