Check photo in Fletcher "Tanks and Trenches" for 9004. How do you know the skull etc were red? Given that teh colour plate in the old Profile shows her as green, does it have this feature right?
I have 9004 as B4 - 2/Lt N. Tattersfield's tank of C Company. (Ran out of fuel on 8th August 1918 - passed to 2/Lt Symons and was knocked out on 23rd August 1918 whilst with a "Composite Company" of 2nd Bn.)
Looking at my notes, Barrhead was 9003 B56 - 2/Lt D Cameron's tank also of C Company. Successfuly rallied at teh end of teh day (no doubt with a very sick crew) (War diaries in teh PRO at WO95/102 and 113)
If I remember Barrhead right (now I've checked), there is a good sequence of shots of her in the Tank Museum, and she is on the cover of David Fletcher's Landships. She's flying her red/white/blue "Rallying" flag I seem to recall.
Whichever tank, she should look good.
Mk IV rails will need turning round, and you'll need to check the arrangement
