Was the Crusader Mk1 used in France? What units would used them if they were used there?
Thanks for any help that can be provided.

The Crusader didn't enter production until late 1940/early '41. I'm sure somebody will have more specific dates than that.

But be aware that there are come photographs that are captioned as Crusaders whereas they are actually A13 cruisers which were with BEF.
