From the Vault: Lucas Tank Mission

Friend of the site P.M. Knight sent us this rather interesting item, a series of photographs taken of the December, 1943 Lucas Tank Mission report.  This mission consisted of a group of British officials sent to the US and Canada in order to examine the latest advances in North American tank technology as well as to advise US authorities on the progress of British production and development.  The report is fairly lengthy, coming in at over 70 pages, but makes for quick reading.  We have converted the photos into a PDF file which may be downloaded.  Posted below are images of the report index so that readers may be able to see what topics the report addresses.  The full report can be downloaded here.
