    I believe that the "male" tanks were fitted with 6 pounder quick firing guns (one in each sponson) and the "female" tanks instead had two machine guns in each sponson.

    Thanks

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
