The Battle of Amiens, was the beginning of the road to victory for the Allies. It began at dawn on 8 August 1918 and the attack was spearheaded by over 500 tanks.
The event will feature arena displays of First World War vehicles, including tanks and armoured cars along with living history encampments and static displays of First World War aircraft, and other examples of First World War military artefacts.
A highlight of the event will see the unveiling of a temporary display where all four Victoria Crosses won by Tank Corps servicemen will be displayed together for the first time.
A French Renault FT-17 tank will also be appearing in the arena, following a restoration, alongside The Tank Museum’s replica Mk IV and German A7V to re-enact the world’s first tank v tank battle.
The one-off event is being supported by The Great War
