I have an old photo i found on the web with a Freikorps unit in the streets of Berlin with an old british mark 1 tank. Were displays of power with tanks seldom or frequent with the Freikorps?

Anyone know the name of this Freikorps unit with the tank in Berlin?

Displays with tanks were rather seldom (Berlin, January and March 1919, and Leipzig, May 1919). The Freikorps mainly relied on armoured cars. They were much cheaper to move around and had quite the same effect on the enemy.
