  2. FEBRUARY HALF TERM Find out More - Camouflage 14th February 2015 - 22nd February 2015 This year February Half Term is all about Camouflage! Find out more about how camouflage techniques are used in combat and how the armed forces take inspiration from nature when trying to stay hidden. Visitors will have the chance to find out how crews work and fight together, conceal and live with their vehicle. There is also the opportunity to sit inside the Chieftain Main Battle Tank and an original First World War Mark IV tank and find out more about how these machines operate. There will be talks, tours and trails as well as activities for the whole family. The Vehicle Conservation Centre will be open every day 13.30 – 16.30.Normal admission prices apply and Annual passes are valid.
  3. HMVF Members, I am a Squadron Leader from the Royal Tank Regiment and am currently charged with organising a static display of military vehicles for the RTR amalgamation parade day, due to be held on the first weekend in August around the Tidworth area. David Willey at the tank museum suggested that I post on here and see if there is any interest in order to improve and diversify our display. Currently I plan to have all the modern vehicles from the Regt there: CR2, CVR(T), CRARRV, Panther and possibly others. The Tank Museum have kindly offered to lend us their Mark IV. I would be keen to hear from any members who own a vehicle that has previously been used by the Regt in its history; though I confess I'm only really looking at combat type vehicles and not B vehicles. Of particular interest to me would be: Saladins, Ferrets and Scorpion (I hear there is even someone with a Sherman out there, which would be amazing!!!) but I'd be wiling to discuss any offers. The day will consist of a parade, BBQ, various displays and fun fair type stands. If you are interested then please respond with the type of vehicle you might be able to offer and I can then discuss it further. Chris
  4. We came across the "Military Museum of Texas" at the end of a two week roadtrip around the Southern States of America. Based in Houston it is a real little gem. The volunteers who run it are all very knowledgeable and very keen to give small groups a very informative guided tour. Robert took us around - he had restored the M35A2 with the quadmount. Something went wrong...
  5. Overview of vehicles at the current Witham tender. I will post a video later showing the selection of CVRTs in more detail.... including the very nice shrubs growing out of a couple of them ! " width="644" height="390"> ">Something went wrong... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mjl_g3lFGgU
  6. Hello. from Sweden a short film clip from our military and amphibious vehicles meeting in Sweden Bengtsfors. 2011-09-03/04 with prototype of the Swedish Combat Boat 90
  7. I am a volunteer member of the Moseley Railway Trust (www.mrt.org.uk), based near Stoke-on-Trent, Staffs. I am also one of the key members of the event organising team. We are in the early stages of starting to plan a significant event in 2014 to raise the profile of the often overlooked, tactical narrow gauge railways & the troops who constructed/operated them as used by all combatants during WW1. These WW1 light railways played a pivotal role in both the war & shaping industry in the post war years – bringing many (as we define them now) modern advances. More details about WW1 railways here: www.wdlr.org.uk Our museum has a large collection of ex-WW1 items, by bringing various other visiting items, we hope to be able create a unique interpretive event representing as many of the combatents (German, French, US, Dominion) as possible. Our site includes a significant field area & is adjacent to a country park, in addition to our railways. We are starting to investigate other complimentary visting items/attractions etc (including living history groups/vehicles) to add further depth & interest to the displays. I would be very interested to hear from anyone with ideas/offers of assistance/equipment who may be able to help or attend please. Photos from last year's Opening Gala attached for info - there was a small WW1 element within that event! I hope to hear from you soon. Best regards, Gareth Roberts
