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.


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.


You DO NOT need to own a military vehicle to become a member of the MVT, but helpful to have a kean interest in these machines will greatly help.
