    Great footage!

    Did the New Zealanders actually use Valentines in combat in Italy? Or just training?

    Oh, whoops, I thought that was training in a volcanic area in Italy. Thanks for pointing out my mistake, Tom.

    Yes sorry I probably should have been more clear, training in New Zealand.

    They use them mostly for training but small number is used in the Solomons against Japanese. I don't think that 2nd NZ ever used them in Italy, 4th Brigade used Shermans and Stuarts instead.
