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

We are the world’s largest military vehicle club and the only charity dedicated to the conservation of ex-military vehicles and so keeping our mechanical veterans alive.

Our members look after and restore a wide range of ex-military vehicles with origins in both the UK and overseas and from pre-World War One to the present day. They include the well-known jeep, tanks, transporters, lorries, ambulances, cars, Land Rovers, motorbikes, and even the humble folding push bike.

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 is a network of 33 local MVT areas throughout the country, where like-minded people meet up, enjoy the hobby and offer mutual support to one another. They organise meetings, social events, road runs and events and many are active on social media. So why not take a look at the  interactive map  to find the Area closest to you.

EX-SERVICES

As many of our members are ex-services, we have close ties with ex-servicemen’s associations. In particular many areas have close involvement with the Royal British Legion’s 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 them for film and TV work.

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 for events such as the 2019 75th D-Day Tour to visit the beaches, and in some cases with vehicles that actually landed on French soil back in June 1944!

As a registered charity we are proud to help and support our veterans in returning to the beaches on which they fought for our freedom and the freedom of Europe in 1944 – 1945. With our presence, the vehicles we preserve help to educate and inform the people who attend the anniversaries about what happened from June 1944 to May 1945 and of course the fighting in the Far East that didn’t finish until VJ Day in August 1945. We owe a debt of gratitude to all who fought for us, and still serve in the armed forces, so we can be free today.
