Film reenactment of 1916 World War I scenes emphasizing tanks, in a feature film, made circa 1927

Reenactment of scenes from 1916 in World War 1, probably filmed circa 1927 in Southwest England. Two British Mk V Tanks advance through shellfire. One has its gun mountings plated over and has dummy guns; the other has its gun mounts intact, though the guns might be dummies, and carries anti-grenade mesh on its roof. (This is error by movie makers, since this type of anti-grenade protection was not carried on Mk V tanks) The tank advances towards enemy trenches, followed by British soldiers who pursue German soldiers fleeing along the network of trenches. The tank, filmed from below, in the trench, as it moves over the trench.
