Recording: Norfolk Born: the development of the tank and the outstanding role of Elliot Hotblack in WW1

Caroline Holland and Eric Hotblack

It was in World War One (WW1) that tanks were first deployed and in Elveden, on the Norfolk/Suffolk border (described as “the most secret place on earth”) that the first British tank crews were trained. While Eric Hotblack will focus on the fascinating development of the tank, his cousin, Caroline Holland will examine the extraordinary life and career of their great uncle, Elliot Hotblack, who was born in Norfolk and is currently featured in the Tank Men Exhibition at the Tank Museum.
