    This isn't 1914-18, or a tank. It's a British "Dragon" Artillery Tractor. Probably sometime in the 1930s. Some still in service at outbreak of WW2. Location uncertain - some went to France with BEF in 1939.

    Thanks Tankmanc! Very helpful information. Does anyone know when and where this might have been filmed? And any more info on the "Dragon"?
