Even after the War they did tankrides! We give you a ride on the inside!

As a small-scale organization, we are forced to limit our events, so thats why we can’t do our tankrides for private groups, special requests of photographers,… (anymore) and we ask for your understanding and support for this. Building such a tank was a challenge as a group, but giving answers to a lot of requests of the public also! As soon as we can and without any tankproblems, we will try to organize one tankweekend per year but we will stop at 2500 passengers, tanks where not made to ride big distances. You can follow this up every year via this website or our facebookpage!

The tank can be viewed statically at the pondfarm by appointment (via email only), see also www.depondfarm.be where you can also view Stijn's WW1 collection.
