Img.052 (from Battle of Milicz - #E1-3)

Img.052 (#E1-3) I (i.e. Dr. Eng. Jan Pajak) photographed at the British tank "Valentine V" of 1942. It was the basic tank of the British Army. It was manufactured by Vickers Amstrong Ltd, Engineers Newcastle upon Tyne. According to the data on page 44 of the aforementioned book [1#E1.1], only in the UK between 1940 and 1944 6855 such Valentine tanks were built - which represented almost 25% of the production of tanks of all possible types in that country. In addition, a further 1420 Valentine tanks were built in Canada - almost all of which (except for thirty retained for training purposes), were shipped to the Soviet Union.
