 THE MILITARY VEHICLE TRUST 

Hello and welcome to the website of the Military Vehicle Trust, the MVT.

We are now officially, the worlds Oldest and Largest Military Vehicle club.

 

We are a charitable organisation dedicated to the conservation of ex military vehicles.

Our members look after and restore the 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, motorbikes, the humble folding bicycle and range from pre First World War to the present day.

You can contact the MVT by Email or telephone using our call handling service Monday to Friday 9 am to 5 pm. 

LOCAL AREAS

There are 33 local Areas, please see the interactive map to find one close to you, which 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. Local areas organise social events, outings and local shows.

EX-SERVICES

As many of our members are ex-services, there are close ties with ex-servicemen's associations. In particular many areas have close involvement with the Royal British Legions Poppy appeal with members and their vehicles supporting the collection points. 

EDUCATION

MVT members pay particular attention to the authenticity of vehicles, equipment and displays. Our events are of educational value for members of the public and we try to ensure that the younger generations are aware of our heritage and the debt we owe to all branches of the armed forces. All members are proud of the standard of their vehicles and this is reflected in the frequent requests for vehicles for film and TV work.

NEW EVENTS

The MVT and its Members attend and organise a variety of shows both big and small across the U.K., see our Events Calendar, and even into Europe with last years 75th D Day Tour back to the beaches where it all happened in some of the vehicles who actually landed there in 1944 for real! We are extremely proud as a registered charity to help and support our veterans in returning to the beaches on which they fought for our freedom and the freedom of the whole of Europe in 1944 - 1945. By our presence with the vehicles we cherish we help to educate and inform the people who attend about what happened there in 1944  to 1945 and the debt of gratitude we owe to all who fought for us to be free today.
