|Ready for action. 327th Bn. Tank Corps. 227 six-ton tanks were supplied to us by the French. 350 ten-ton type were supplied by the British. 1100 five-ton tanks and 300 large tractors of our own make were shipped overseas before Nov. 1. Only a few arrived in time for action. For some unknown reason production continued on the new five-ton type until March 31, 1919. With 799 completed, production was halted.|
