Another batch for the desert, though it's fairly marginal. Five Valentines from GHQ - pack UK-25, which is listed as Valentine III and XI. The turrets supplied were five of the 75mm versions plus just two of the 6pdr type for the Valentine III, so I made them all as XIs. I gave them a version of the Caunter paint scheme, which is certainly dubious for the Valentine XI - by the time they arrived the Caunter scheme had been superseded. But if I need Valentines of any mark for my desert battles these will be wheeled out - they're not going to get a lot of use in Europe.
