Latest Issue of The Despatch.


The latest Autumn 2018 issue of the e-Despatch was sent out to all members on the 20th of November with the posted hard copy following a few days later for those with limited access to e-mail. If you have not received your copy then contact Roddy Brown. It  may be that your contact details may be out of date. If so then contact Roddy Brown to give us an update. Sucessful delivery depends on an up to date e-mail and address list.

You will have noticed we now have a new editor on board. Suzanne Fernando has volunteered to take on the role of Despatch Editor. We would like to thank her for taking up this essential position so we can all enjoy future editions of the Despatch. This issue is a bumper edition as it pretty much contains a whole seasons worth of news and events and no doubt it has kept her busy for many a late evening.  I hope you can all support Suzanne by keeping her supplied with a steady flow of news and event reports to ensure its succesful continuation.


Al Smith

The Scottish Military Vehicle Group recently handed over a cheque for £1000 to the ABF, The Soldiers Charity. The Group actively fundraise for the charity at the many events we attend and the presentation marked the culmination of last year’s fundraising efforts. Club Chairman Roddy Brown handed over the cheque to the ABF’s representative Alex Braceland at our Military Swap Meet held at Bridge of Earn on the 4th of March.

SMVG Facebook Page


Does the SMVG have a Facebook page? Its a question that we are often asked and the answer is yes we do. However its a private page only open to club members and its status is secret at the moment so a quick search will reveal nothing. If you are a current member and you wish to join our Facebook community you need to contact John Webster who I'm sure will get you on board in a jiffy. Contact John on email at
