Default MV Clubs

Heres another few more for NSW.

AAVA.
Australian Armoured Vehicle Association- based in Sydney.

There is, i believe, also a Military Landrover Club of NSW- whether they are a stand alone body or a branch of the land rover club up here i am not sure. Someone should know better than i though!

And i`m not 110% sure, but i think there is some kind of group up around the Newcastle area in NSW, but i dont really know- i might just be delerious again!



Cheers,

Ian. (AMVCS Secretary)

In NSW you may just have seen Dennis (Dinty) taking his fleet for a drive

Conversely it may have been the Registry of Ex Military Land Rovers (REMLR) as they have very active contingents in NSW and in QLD. Thanks for the heads up though, i'll update my list.

Of course, the largest membership in the country... but I was waiting until the official launch, whenever that may be.

Default Military Vehicle Group of New South Wales (MVGNSW)

Military Vehicle Group of NSW Inc. (MVGNSW) is a military vehicle group based in NSW. It was founded by a group of military vehicle enthusiasts and owners in February 2021. We are a small group who cater for those restoring, operating or displaying their vehicles. Our founding members have a wide range of military vehicles and pride themselves in being an active group and being family orientated. We have plenty of adventures to share and if you or an event require a group of friendly faces with knowledge and pride about our Military Vehicles then don't hesitate to get in contact with us.

Our motto is "Keeping Historic Military Vehicles Alive"

    Print Newsletters
    Combination of the above
    Other- method

Thanks Phil Waterman
