Dashing Capt Hotblack during the war.
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.
A Christmas card sent by one of the First World War's most heroic tank officers has been unearthed 100 years later.
Elliot Hotblack posted the simple card from 'Advance Headquarters Tank Corps' in December 1917, presumably to his parents in Norfolk.
It includes a print of a crewman waving his cap from a Mark IV tank beneath the words 'Christmas Greetings.
The card has been found in the archives of the Tank Museum in Dorset where it will now go on display.
