The Matilda I (A11 Infantry Tank Mk I) got it’s name when General Sir Hugh Ellis, watching the new tank in trials, commented that it waddled like Matilda the Duck, a comic strip character of the time. The Matilda II naturally inherited the name.
The Matilda II was first considered even before the Matilda I was in service. The British had two initial Infantry Tank concepts. They were for either; a) a very small and inconspicuous tank with heavy armour and armed with machine-guns and available in large numbers or b) a larger tank with an anti-tank gun and heavy armour able to engage enemy tanks as well as infantry with its machine-guns.
