Mick Slater.

It is with much sadness we learned of the death of long time club member Michael (Mick) Slater.

 

Mick passed away peacefully at home in Ireland on Saturday April 3rd 2021, and his cremation took place in Dublin on Wednesday 7th.

 

Mick joined the SMVG over twenty five years ago and although he had lived in Ireland for the past fifteen years, he still regularly made the journey to the Club Swap Meets, Scone and other events. Mick was a well known and active club member, always ready and willing to lend a hand.

 

Our condolences go to Mick's son, Patrick, and the rest of his family.

 

R.I.P Mick.

Ian Harvey.

17.07.20.

It's with much sadness that I have to report the passing this evening of our good friend and comrade, Ian Harvey, better known to us all as “Snowy”.

Snowy's health had been deteriorating for a number of years, but despite this he was never happier than when attending shows and events. He would gladly share his extensive knowledge of WW2 weapons and kit with anyone who asked, and would hold the public engrossed with detailed and entertaining presentations, especially with his favorite, the Vickers Machine Gun.

Snowy will be remembered as a real gentleman, and a good friend. RIP Snowy, your duty's done.

Charity Cheque Presentation.

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.
