Given all the to - ing and fro - ing over the RTR and it's somewhat uncertain future (along with, it seems, the whole British Army) to wish all members of the RTR a great Cambrai day, and may we celebrate many more!! The Tanks that broke the ranks out in Picardy. In No Man's Land one early morn at fifty in the shade From out the British lines there came the famous Tank Brigade The Huns began to strafe 'em, couldn't make it out at all Especially when the tanks began the Caterpillar crawl. And the tanks went on, and they strolled along with an independent air And their guns began to blare, and the Huns began to swear For they pulled the trees up by the roots, and they made the Huns look like galoots Did the tanks that broke the ranks out in Picardy The Huns peeped through their trenches, for they couldn't understand. They cried "Here comes the British Navy, sailing on the land!" The Kaiser saw them also and, as through the trench he ran, He shouted out to Tirpitz "Hush! Here comes the bogey man!" And the tanks went on, and they strolled along with an independent air Said the Huns, "It isn't fair! You're not fighting on the square!" At the fortress then they made a call and started walking through the wall Did the tanks that broke the ranks out in Picardy.
