Text in original Preserved Tanks In Russia publication:

The Valentine was a reliable, adequate, design that was easy to build. Some eight thousand were built, many in Canada. The Soviet Union was sent 2,690 examples; 1,300 British and almost the entire Canadian production run. Whilst they were initially very welcome, it was not very long before they were outclassed by the contemporary Soviet and German designs. This Valentine was clearly one of these Lend-Lease vehicles. It has been provided for displays in the Moscow region. British vehicles can be distinguished from Canadian ones as the British ones had bolted nose plates - this is such a vehicle - whilst the Canadian ones were welded.

Text in Preserved Tanks In Russia Update:

Since the original edition of PTIR, this Valentine has been repainted and moved to an external display area.
