The Essex Historic Military Vehicle Association exists so that the public are better able to understand the significant role that Historic Military Vehicles have played in our world and remember those who constructed, used and maintained them.

Although our aims are varied, they can be summarised as follows:

This is an event designed to stimulate and educate, as well as reflect on the memories of those people who used these preserved collections as part of their everyday lives, in many cases to protect the freedom we enjoy today. On many occasions, members of the public are able to better understand how their family members interacted with the objects they see, whether it be a 30 Ton tank that their mother helped to build, or the lorry their great grandfather drove in Flanders during World War 1.

Whatever it might be, our aim is to preserve the past for future generations.
