Meet The Team
As the Editor of the Military Vehicle Trust’s club magazine Windscreen since 2016, my job is primarily to compile the 100-page bi-monthly magazine using material supplied by members along with my own articles and show reports and any additional material that may be required. Much of my contact with members is via email enquiries, with some face to face meetings at various shows and events throughout the year, and I am lucky to have a marvellous group of regular contributors to rely on.
The job entails planning each issue, ensuring that material arrives on time, as well as liaising with trade advertisers and the associated paperwork and invoicing. I try to base the content of each issue on what I believe members will find interesting, using my own long-term interest in military vehicles as a guide, but I rely heavily on the quality of the material supplied by members and to date I haven’t been disappointed.
On a personal level I have been interested in military vehicles since a young child, following regular visits to the Tank Museum Bovington during family holidays. My first foray into vehicle ownership was in 1991 and since then I have owned a wide range of vehicles over the years. My main area of enjoyment from the hobby is the restoration of the vehicles, but I have attended many events over the years and continue to do so as part of my role as Editor. In addition to my role with the MVT I help run the family furniture hire firm and am the Area Secretary for my local Royal British Legion branch, which also involves the arranging of special displays in support of fund raising for Armed Forces Day and the Poppy Appeal.
