    Canada's war supplies were to be shared by the United Nations on the basis of strategic needs without financial consideration. In making this announcement on Feb 8th, 1943 Mr. Ilsley, the Canadian Finance Minister stated that the Dominion Parliament would be asked to authorize a further £225,000,000 for that purpose. This photograph shows a trainload of tanks arriving at a Canadian port to be loaded aboard ships bound for Britain and the U.S.S.R.
