  1. A sad reminder to all of us who work by/under vehicles: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-hampshire-35238029
  2. Iraq receives more T-72s, BMP-1s

    http://www.janes.com/article/56734/iraq-receives-more-t-72s-bmp-1s
  3. http://www.defensenews.com/story/defense/land/vehicles/2015/10/11/uk-army-extend-life-challenger-2-new-tank-too-costly/73410010/
  4. Seems to have been kept quiet but DVLA have announced all 40year old Historic registered tax exempt vehicles can now display old style Black & White or Silver number plates, previously the cut off date was fixed at pre Jan.1973 vehicles only. http://www.tippersvintageplates.co.uk/
  5. It seems the early start to the school term has had a dramatic effect on attendance this year, so the event is being brought forward to the Bank Holiday weekend.
  6. Petition Background (Preamble): There are proposals to lease a large part of the Royal Gunpowder Mills to PGL Holidays. While the site does need investment for renovation we believe that the current plans will see many of the facilities out of bounds to the public. It would also see Heritage Lottery Fund money going to renovate buildings which would then be for PGL's exclusive use. (Copied from the Go Petition site) http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/save-the-royal-gunpowder-mills.html
  7. Not quite sure where to post this - hopefully here is acceptable as it is WW1 military railway equipment and not-for-profit organisation? Just a short note to let you know that the newly created “Tracks to the Trenches” Driver experience course dates for 2016 have been released. This unique “day in the life” of a WW1 light railway operating company driver (footplate experience course) uses much of our large historic collection of (British, French and US) WW1 railway engines and rolling stock. Delivered in a special presentation gift pack, the voucher has a validity of 18 months, with the actual course date to be selected and booked directly by the recipient. With Christmas just around the corner, is this a perfect present for those difficult people who already have everything!? Please see http://www.ww1-event.org/driver-experience-course for more details! In other news, plans are developing well for the next "Tracks to the Trenches" WW1 Centenary Event - 13-15th May 2016. Please keep watching the main website - we are always keen to receive offers of WW1 exhibits and assistance!

  11. Hi Guys and Girls. Anyone know about this or have any more information - (Bear in mind this is a legal matter so watch what you write). http://www.halsteadgazette.co.uk/news/halstead_news/13921601.Convoy_of_seized_tanks_passes_through_village/?ref=fbshr Is this part of a wider investigation by the authorities?

  13. Peter Gray R.I.P.

    Earlier today, Peter Gray, the founder of the Military Vehicle Conservation Group (later known as MVT) passed away in France. There is an obituary from his friend Nigel Hay, on Milweb, see link http://www.milweb.net/webvert/78611 There is no doubt at all that Peter was very instrumental in getting the preserved military vehicle movement going in the UK, and further afield. Having been a member of the club since around 1978, I remember Peter well. I was pleased as punch to receive a tankard from him for best motorcycle at an event in my first show season. Peter, rest in peace, you started the ball rolling and we are all the better for it, as it has opened many of our lives up to what is now a worldwide interest. Richard Farrant
  14.

  15. eurooldtimers.com

    Whilst browsing the web I discovered a website http://www.eurooldtimers.com The owner of this site is based in CZ (part of the EU). As I was browsing through the pictures of various vehicles I discovered that there were compilations of photo's from numerous sources, Withams being one, and Milweb being another (several private sellers advert photos being used) with the name of the website stamped across them as though they were the copyright of the website owner of eurooldtimers.com, whose details can easily be found using whois, including his phone number and e-mail address. The copyright legislation in The EU is quite clear and can be found at: http://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/EN/TXT/?qid=1442701487085&uri=URISERV:l26053 Diana

  18. Saw this on War history Online, but it's all over the net. 2 guys claim to have found a Nazi train in a tunnel, Even if there isn't a single gold coin, a "time capsule" train from 1945 would be worth a fortune. Clothing, documents, personal weapons, the rail cars themselves, hell even a singe Panzer, would be worth millions. https://www.rt.com/news/312924-poland-nazi-gold-train/
