Tank Bank - 9 June in Doncaster Market Place, commemorating the day in 1918 when Egbert the Tank visited Doncaster to raise money for the war effort during the First World War.  Local people came to see Egbert, buy war bonds and were given war bond certificates in return.

Heritage Doncaster re-created photographs taken featuring councillors and dignitaries in 1918 with their contemporary equvalents.

The event included a replica First World War tank in the Market Place, craft activities, live music and Living History from the Manchester Regiment and History's Maid.
