Tank Memorial

Near the Guynemer monument is this nice little memorial to the Tank Corps.
It includes this off cut from a British tank....
...and this 2-foot long model.  Apparently there used to be a real tank here for a few years after The Great War.

Opportunity for a Mr plastic Warrior 1-1 scale model mystery Wednesday, which part of a tank is this ?

Its from one of the side sponsons off a Mark IV, but here is the clever bit. I think it is off one of the traveling sponsons that they used when transporting them. See https://www.awm.gov.au/exhibitions/advancing/MarkIV/. I therefore claim my prize of sad son of a beagle for the week.

I was confident someone would rise to this challenge. But surely only a really sad case would...
