The Mk. III Valentine was a British infantry tank produced during World War II. The tank had many variants, and over 8000 vehicles of this type were produced. There are several versions of why the tank was called "Valentine", most popular being that the design was presented to the War Office on the 14th of February.

Initially Vickers produced 10 tanks per month, rising to 45 per month, and peaking at 20 per week in 1943. Production of the Valentine and vehicles based on the Valentine stopped in 1945.
