VINTAGE MILITARY POSTCARD: LA POMPELLE - ATTAQUE ALLEMANDE DU 15 JUILLET 1918 - LE TANK "LOTTE" ÉCHOUÉ EN 1ére LIGNE -- THE POMPELLE -German Attack on July 15, 1918 - the TANK "LOTTE" failed in first wave (of attack)

Postcard: This is "LOTTI",or # 527, that ended up stranded Sept 22, 1918 in front of the "Fort de la Pompelle", near Reims. The crew abandoned it just before the French Artillery scored a direct hit to its turret. "Lotti" is the only one destroyed that way. La Pompelle was a major French fort holding one of the access to Reims and the Germans not only lost "Lotti" there, but also a couple of captured British tanks. La Pompelle never fell and is now a museum worth a visit. HOWEVER. This postcard is not the 1918 real RPPC. I believe it is a 1940s WWII patriotic reprinting by Jacques Freville of Reims. The front is high photograph gloss. The reverse does NOT have Freville's wording of "Repro."
