Lancelot De Mole
Lancelot Eldin "Lance" de Mole[1] CBE, (13 March 1880 – 6 May 1950) was an Australian
Australian
engineer and inventor.[2] He made several approaches to the British authorities in 1912, in 1914 and 1916, in relation to what would become the tank. It was ahead of its time because in 1912 the need for such a military device had not yet arisen. To further complicate matters his correspondence was set aside due to various bureaucratic blunders, and was not given to the appropriate officers. Long after the first military tanks had been built and used in warfare during World War I, in 1919 a Royal Commission recognized the importance of de Mole's innovative work

Corporal
Corporal
Corporal
is a military rank in use in some form by many militaries and by some police forces or other uniformed organizations. Within NATO, each member nation's corresponding military rank of corporal is combined under the NATO-standard rank scale code OR-4. However, there are often differences in how each nation (or service in each nation) employs corporals. Some militaries don't have corporals, but may instead have a Junior Sergeant. In some militaries, the rank of corporal nominally corresponds to commanding a section or squad of soldiers. However, in the United States Army, the rank of corporal is considered a "lateral promotion" from E-4 Specialist and usually only occurs when the soldier has been selected by a promotion board to become an E-5 Sergeant
