    Default Possible tank wheel found on a ww1 dump, Great Britain

    Hello,

    I have been recovering artifacts from a first world war dump and found a very heavy duty wheel of some kind. Its very similar to a small roller/idler seen on many tanks of the time. It weighs about 15KG and is in a part of the dump where many items are dated 1919 (from the time the camp was a demob center) so could have been a bring back souvenir from a tank/vehicle. Could you have a look at the attached photographs and tell me if it looks like anything from a WW1 armored vehicle. Also no idea what country it could have originated from so I have just posted it in the German area of the forum because it would be amazing if it is from an A7V.........we can all dream



    Thanks
