New branch of military vehicle conservators formed in Huntingdon
THEY may be past their prime and unwanted by the military, but old tanks and trucks can find new homes with a group dedicated to the conservation of former military vehicles.
A new branch of the Military Vehicles Trust (MVT), a charitable organisation, has been set up to cover the Huntingdon, Cambridge, Peterborough, Bedford and Fenland areas.
The MVT has around 45 areas holding monthly meetings that provide a forum for members to talk about their pride and joy, and offer help.
“The reasons for joining are as varied as the members themselves, but they all share a passion for anything old, green and drivable,” said Ian Garbutt, the new area

“So, if you see them out and about, please be considerate to them on the roads, and they will always be happy, once stopped, to show you over their green machines.
“It’s a great hobby, keeps these beautiful pieces of history on the road and every trip out is an adventure.”
