Here is an interesting news.  Valentine IX was discovered in Poland in a Warta River near city Lodz.  The tank was from 1943 and was under the water since WWII.  The fire department had to cut off part of the river and pomp out the water to get the tank out.  Now it will go throught restoration process which experts say will take about 3 years.

all the papers call it a MK10 but on the tank itself the brass plate reads 'Valentine IX' ....
