Hi all,

I have gotten interested in the technical development of the Canadian-made Valentine in the past year (I started doing archival research last year helping Mike Starmer match British paint colours at LAC). Anyway, I would really like to locate the records related to the winter trials that took place in early 1942 in Kapuskasing.

I haven't been able to find a file at LAC. I was assured by Doug Knight in a brief email exchange that the records should be in the CWM system, but I can't find them.

Does anyone happen to know where these are?
