    These are MarkIV tanks being built. Down the centre of the workshop can be seen the petrol tractor chassis being readied to be fitted into the tanks. On the crane at the back of the photo, driven by a Munitionette, it looks like a chassis is about to be fitted to the tank at top left of the photo. on the front left tank chalk marks can be seen around some hole positions to remind the riveter that bolts will be fitted through those holes for internal fitments.
