Title:TANK AND INFANTRY COOPERATION [Allocated Title]
Film Number:IWM 1201
Summary: Tank and Infantry cooperation trials, probably in Britain, late 1918.
Description: Two Mark IV tanks, a Male "HMLS Daisy" and a Female "HMLS Dauntless" practise trench-crossing (some of the material is shot from inside the trench). A Mark IV command tank, waving a flag, leads other Mark IVs forward. Back with the trench-crossing trials. A brief shot of a Mark I Male tank in camouflage. A Mark IV Male advances on some 'Germans' who 'surrender' as it approaches them, being led off by supporting Infantry. More Infantry advance supported by a Mark IV tank. Shells burst around a command tank. A platoon of Infantry in battle order poses for the camera; a line of Tank Corps men also pose, first by themselves then on top of their tank. A barbed wire entanglement with 'shell-bursts' coming closer (in fact a fuse burning from one charge to another). Infantry advance in artillery formation up to the wire, then signal to a tank which advances over the wire, crushing lanes for the Infantry to advance. More shots of Mark IV tanks manoeuvring around.
