  • Description

    No title.

    Story about the "world's smallest tank" - a model. C/U of the tank. Various shots of the tank being put through its paces. (From the intertitle it looks like it is called Tiny Tim rather than Tony Jim.) Man stands on the back of the tank as it drives over the top of bricks put in its path. The tractor is strong enough to pull along a cart upon which three men sit. Item incomplete.

    Was an item in Pathe Pictorial issue number 699.

    Note: flash-frame intertitles.

British Pathe captured many extraordinary events on film over its 80 year history but sometimes the cameras were switched on when tragedy struck.
