WW1 tank in London???


Recommended Posts

I've been working in London recently and driving in on the A40 spotted what appears to be a WW1 tank perched on top of a building signed as being Vanguard self storage.


Does anyone know what its story is, how it came to be there, is it the real deal? It certainly looks so driving past.
