Welcome to the website of the MVT's South East Midlands Area. Our members look after and restore a whole range of ex-military vehicles with both UK and overseas origins. Vehicles include the well known Jeep through to tanks, transporters, lorries, Land Rovers, motor bikes, the humble folding bicycle and range from pre-First World War to the present day.
Local areas hold informal monthly meetings that provide a forum for members to discuss just about any topic they want. Wherever you are, you can be sure there is another member who can help or who knows someone who can.

Our meetings are usually held at the Aviator pub, Sywell Aerodrome, near Northampton, at 8pm on the first Thursday of the month (but not January). Just go into the bar and ask for directions to the MVT meeting room. Check first with the Diary section in case the venue or date has changed.
The MVT's main website is at www.mvt.org.uk and there is also a Facebook page: Military Vehicle Trust

Message from the Bedford RBL: I am the DPAO for Royal British Legion, Bedford. On August 12th we are holding an annual Poppy Walk for Honour at Priory Country Park, Bedford.
As it is the centenary of the end of the first world war, we are focusing on Bedfordshire and the Home Front as well as the forces. We have a few attractions booked including a brass band, singers, fairground ride etc, but are hoping to find someone who would be willing to bring a military vehicle/vehicles for the public to see (and possibly collect donations for RBL) please.
Our facebook page can be found at https://www.facebook.com/Royal-British-Legion-Bedfordshire-Poppy-Walk-for-Honour-214464469117072/Royal British Legion Bedfordshire Poppy Walk for HonourI look forward to hearing from you. Kind Regards Jane Vallance (Janie Vee) Royal British Legion, Riders Branch, Bedfordshire DPAO.Email:  janiev1969@hotmail.com

There will be stalls, food, and displays of modern vehicles such as Husky, Bulldog, Challenger tank, Mann wreckers. The Morgan Car Club is also attending. All MVs are welcome and there is free entrance. Be there before 9.30am. Leave when you want.
As at our Chicksands visit last year, names and registration numbers are needed two weeks before and bring photo ID with you.
The address is Gamecock Barracks, Nuneaton, Warwickshire, CV11 6QN.

THE MVT's Council of Management meeting in February agreed to start a Facebook page. There were some concerns about this in terms of the reputation of the MVT but it was thought that members would do their best to ensure that the page is fun, interactive and above all useful for the members of the MVT and potential members. Please encourage other members to join!

***********************************************


We want to know what South East Midlands Area members have lurking in their garages and sheds, so please send us a picture and short write-up of your green machine. We'll put them on the Members' Vehicles section. Email the webmaster at petegerry@btinternet.com and attach a jpeg picture. Or you could bring along a photograph and description to a monthly meeting.
