A tank was given to the people of Shaw on 17th Aug 1919 in recognition of their record-breaking war savings effort. It was driven from Shaw Station to Dunwood Park, where it remained until being given for use as scrap metal during the Second World War.
If anyone has any pictures of the actual tank (the picture in this article is actually another tank that visited Oldham around the same time) then please get in touch!
