Re: New article: This spice packs a punch!

I'm always interested in unusual stuff like this. If they could have added some sort of guidance system, that could have been really something. I suspect hits would have been rare at 2km range, given the time it would take to get to the target. Grant, someone on TWW has asked if it's not named after...

Valentines in Madagascar

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