Summary: The arrival of 5th Battalion, Royal Tank Corps, in Cologne, probably April 1920.
Description: The British reverse their Mark V Male tanks into a courtyard in the centre of the city, to the interest of the civilian crowd. The men perform maintenance on their tanks, while soldiers and armed German civilians guard them. The crowd, including some curious children, is kept at bay by the sentries. The children are shown in close-up.
