German air aces in a relaxed moment away from the front.
Remarkable photographs revealing how the Germans used captured British tanks against us because theirs were no good have come to light over 100 years later.
The British were the first to invent the tank in 1916 and a year later used them to overwhelm the enemy at the Battle of Cambrai in the First World War.
Although the battle was a success for the British, the Germans captured several Mark IV tanks.
Now black and white photos have emerged to show the German high command inspecting one the hulking machines in Berlin in 1918.
Other pictures in the album depicts the early days of aerial warfare when hand grenades were dropped over the side of the cockpits by German pilots.
