  1. Hi I research British tanks and tank production in WW1, and I'm in need of some help in placing the Ashford tank in the Mark IV production sequence. To do this ideally I need to know its four digit manufacturer's number (which is not 1234 as painted on it today). It should be visible internally on a metal casting at the top of the diaphragm towards the rear of the sponson openings. (Not all Mark IVs have them in this position; I'm acting on a strong hunch that I've already correctly identified the manufacturer). Ashford Borough Council have been helpful in searching for any internal photos they might hold, but have only been able to provide ones taken from outside through the replica rear door. These don't show what I need because the castings face forward and would be obscured from this point. Entry to the tank is now prohibited due to health and safety concerns so I can't enter and take my own photos, and I'm not sure how a drone would work when surrounded by metal. I'm wondering whether anyone on the Forum already has internal photos of the Ashford tank that show this aspect. If so, I'd be delighted to hear from you. I'd also be interested in hearing from anyone who has ready access to the tank and would be willing to take some external photos of some very detailed points for me. Many thanks Gwyn Evans
