A 100 year old Xmas card has been rediscovered at the Tank Museum in Dorset that shed's light on the astonishing bravery of early tank pioneer Capt Elliot Hotblack.<br />
<br />
A Christmas card sent by one of the First World War's most heroic tank officers has been unearthed 100 years later.<br />
<br />
Elliot Hotblack posted the simple card from 'Advance Headquarters Tank Corps' in December 1917, presumably to his parents in Norfolk.<br />
<br />
It includes a print of a crewman waving his cap from a Mark IV tank beneath the words 'Christmas Greetings.<br />
<br />
The card has been found in the archives of the Tank Museum in Dorset where it will now go on display.
