Photo of the Day 2/14/2016

Valentine-2Considering that today is Valentine’s Day, we thought the most appropriate subject for the PotD would be a Valentine tank.  This picture shows a rather unusual Valentine, it’s a vehicle that was in service on the island of Cyprus in the 1960’s.  It was missing it’s turret which had been replaced by a simple metal box-like superstructure and armed with a BREN gun.  More info here.


  1. That’s not the only rare thing in that photograph. That soldier on the left has a United Defense M42 submachine gun. Photos of that weapon in issued service are pretty rare.
