On June 7, 1917, the British Army pushed into Messines to take it from the Germans.   A group of eight men in a British Mark IV tank of the Heavy Branch Machine Gun Corps took part in that battle, but saw and dealt with something terrible they had never expected to see: The Colossus of Messines.

On March 30, 2019, I ran a one-shot Call of Cthulhu scenario for NerdCon 2019 at Appalachian State University. "The Colossus of Messines" saw the six players running soldiers who were the crew of a Mark IV tank during the Battle of Messines.
