Default Earliest Tanks, Richardo and head design

I thought these three videos put together show the story of the earliest tanks
(skip to 2:25 to avoid the video game advert)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ESKxi4EEDUQ

And the British tank.
Now, interestingly it uses a Daimler engine and was to have been replaced by a "Ricardo" one.

Updraught, Tanks you. I needed something to occupy my time.
