WW2 Valentine Tank, pulled from a swamp in Poland

On Thursday 25th of October, 2012 a Vickers Valentine tank was recovered from a swamp area on the River Warta in Western Poland
It is believed to have fallen through ice covering a tributary of the River Warta, as it rolled towards Berlin during the Soviet Red Army’s massive 1945 assault on German defences in the east.

Around 2,000 Valentines were delivered to the USSR as part of Western military lend/lease program during WW2.
