Actually, that's exactly what I'm looking for :) Ironclad was the only part that tanks were involved.

Valentines in Madagascar

I'm trying to work out which mark of Valentine tank was used in the 1942 invasion of Madagascar.

They had 2-pounder guns and three-man crews, which limits it to Mark I, II, IV, VI, or VII, but I haven't been able to narrow it down any further.

Can any of you help?
