'Forgotten' AA Milne tank poem found in Dorset recited

A "forgotten" poem by Winnie the Pooh author AA Milne celebrating the tank has been discovered in archives.

The work, found in an officer's papers at the Tank Museum in Bovington, Dorset, was penned for a military fundraising event in 1918.

Milne, who worked for a British propaganda unit, paid tribute to "The wonderful Tanks" which could "flatten a wood / If the cover's too good".
