A large crowd turns out in New Zealand to watch a military parade of tanks go down a city street, in celebration of the end of World War 1. In front are a group of Mark IV Tanks, the British Army’s work horse and main battle tank. It was also used by British allies such as New Zealand and Australia (the so called Anzac forces). In the rear is a Whippet light tank.

Below are various close ups of the crowd and the tanks.

Make sure to drive slowly! Actually these big lumbering beasts were fairly slow moving even at their top speed.

Close up of the Buildings in the Background. Note the large number of patriotic spectators waving flags. Many are perched precariously on windows and ledges in order to get a better view.
