French Tank Camouflage

According to the text on a postcard, this is a "French Renault Tank used in the [First] World War by the Republic of France…[and] is one of a number that was given to the United States in partial payment of the French War Debt. It still retains its original number, R.F. 2324 as it did during the war. This tank was presented to the James L. Noble Post, No. 3, Veterans of Foreign Wars of Altoona PA and was put in commission by members of that post."
