THE article in The Bugle (August 14 edition) provided useful information on the visit of the tank Julian to Brierley Hill in 1918.

I have attached a photograph which appears in my book By Tram From Dudley of Julian's longer than expected stay there.

The tram in one image was used by British Pathe as a vantage point from which to film the occasion. Their footage can be seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=43zwOoGwNMY

Just noticed that the footage on YouTube also shows the sandbag and barbed wire 'barrier' referred to in the article!

Kind regards

Dr Paul Collins.
