Dunsyre: Wild Hawthorn Press, 1975

13.2 x 10.5cm, 2pp. A line drawing by Jim Nicholson of a forest scene with poppies in the foreground is given the title by Finlay of “Panzer at the forest edge” in German. The camouflage of the tank seems to be perfect as one cannot see it in the drawing (in fact it is not there).
Perhaps the poppies – a flower associated with remembrance of war dead – are there to remind one of a destroyed tank (and there are references to such a rout of the German armoured force in the literature where 14 tanks were destroyed at ‘the edge of the forrest” but that may be coincidence. IN any case one of several cards that uses the idea of tanks in a landscape as a momento mori. VG+.
