As you may notice, the name of the tank is very appropriate! Many of you might be wondering if it has something to do with Valentine’s Day, or if it is just a coincidence.
Sadly the absolute truth is unknown, but theories abound. Some rumours say that that the name came about because the Valentine was submitted to the War Office on St. Valentine’s Day - 14th February 1940. However, other reports claim that it was actually the 10th February 1938. Further sources claim that Valentine was the middle name of Sir John V. Carden, the designer of many vehicles including the Valentine’s predecessors. Another version says that Valentine is an acronym for Vickers-Armstrong Ltd Elswick & (Newcastle-upon) Tyne.
For the purposes of our special, let's go with the first version and enjoy some real loving on our battlefields!
Commanders, get into your tank and turn on the radio to your favourite love song. Roll out!
