And the men of En did make them chariots of strange

And wonderful design, and they did call them tanks,

And the shape of the tanks was for a long time known only

to the few. And some said they were like unto a

lizard that is blown out mightily,that walketh as

a man plagued with the corns.

And others said they were like unto nothing on earth,

being for the most part belly of a fashion that is

given unto no living thing.

And in its gait it was like unto a man that hath

taken strong drink, having first devoured much rice.

For in such case does the belly grow big and the

footsteps do become unsteady.

And in this thing the men of En were first amongst all

the fighters of Eur, for it was new. And the people rejoiced

being satisfied that it was given unto them as a sign that

the riders were becoming awake.    

                                      A Courage Colonel

                                                    Tank Corps

                                               1/2/18 to 28/2/18
