In order to avoid too much difficulty with traffic regulations the convoy may have to be restricted to 60 vehicles, which should be of Second World War vintage and of all allied nations.

About SHMVT:

The South Hampshire Area is a local branch of the MVT and has members who share the aims of the Charitable Trust which was established for the purpose of restoring and preserving military vehicles of historical interest including the preservation of books, drawings, documents, sound and visual recordings, films, photographs and other media and ephemera relating to such vehicles.

 

MVT member vehicles include the well known Jeep through to tanks, transporters, lorries, landrovers, motor bikes, the humble folding bicycle and range from pre First World War to the present day.

 

In fulfilling our Charitable objectives we exhibit our vehicles at various public shows and events instilling in others the role these vehicles have played in the historic context of world conflict, and endeavour to ensure our 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 often this is reflected in the frequent requests for vehicles for film and TV work, charitable and commemorative events.

 

The South Hampshire Area meet on the 2nd Wednesday of the month, 8.00pm Salon bar at the Golden Lion PO17 6EB in the village of Southwick (Suthwyk) (Unless ordered otherwise by General Mayhem).  

 

Come and sample a pint of Old Dick or Liberation ale, served by our host Greg and Jane in the same bar once used as the unofficial Officers' Mess for the senior Allied Commanders who were planning OPERATION OVERLORD at nearby Southwick House.

 

We really are a friendly bunch and welcome guests.

The Military Vehicle Trust (MVT) is an organisation dedicated to the conservation of all forms of ex-military vehicles.

 

Formed by historic military vehicle enthusiasts, The Military Vehicle Trust has grown into one of the largest military vehicle preservation groups in existence with branches worldwide and a membership of thousands.
