Subject notes
In 1918 a British tank called "Julian" was taken on a tour of the country as a fund raising scheme, designed to help the war effort. The idea was for people to throw money into the 'tank bank' or to buy National War Bonds and War Savings Certificates from the tank to raise money for the war against Germany. Julian visited a number of places in the Falkirk area, including Denny and Grangemouth.
