The Friends are a group of like-minded enthusiasts dedicated to raising public awareness of the role of the City of Lincoln in the conception, development and building of the 20th century’s most formidable fighting machine.
The Group was formed in 2004 by a small group of Tank fans, and has grown steadily over the years with members from Lincolnshire and beyond.
The Chairman of the Friends is Richard Pullen, historian and author of ‘The Landships of Lincoln’ and ‘Beyond the Green Fields’.
Meetings are held every two months in Lincoln. Look under the ‘Forthcoming Events’ tab for details of the next meeting. All are welcome.
