    The hunt for the tank at Flesquieres was inspired and led by Philippe Gorcynski, an historian of the Battle of Cambrai, and author of the book ‘Following the Tanks’.
    I have a few links here.

    Great article mate

    I believe they have identified the crew who are buried somewhere in the area, I will have to take a look around and see if I can find the grave stones and some information.
