Tanks and horses on the Western Front

The old and the new – a horse-drawn team passes a tank that seems to have broken down on the side of the road. Photograph taken at Grévillers on 26 August 1918.

On 21 August 1918, the British Third Army (including the New Zealand Division) attacked along a 15-km front north of Amiens, breaking through the German line and driving toward Bapaume. The New Zealand Division played a support role for the first few days of the battle, then spearheaded the attack from 24 August, capturing Grévillers, Loupart Wood and the village of Biefvillers in a single day.
