The world’s only working Tiger Tank will be the star attraction as a variety of military vehicles gather at The Tank Museum this Saturday.
Over 40 privately owned vehicles are expected to attend the Museum’s inaugural Wartime Military Vehicle show which will feature 90 minutes of live action, talks, tours and a host of other family friendly activities.
“For most the highlight of the day will be the chance to see our most famous exhibit, Tiger 131, taking part in a display alongside some of the more interesting World War Two and Cold War vehicles in our collection.” said Museum spokesman Nik Wyness. “Visitors will also be able to see a fascinating line-up of vehicles which belong to local enthusiasts and find out more about their vehicles and their passion for conservation.”
A large proportion of vehicle owners attending are members of the Military Vehicle Trust (MVT); a group of military vehicle heritage enthusiasts who privately maintain and restore a range of ex-military machines from jeeps and trucks to motorbikes and armoured vehicles.
“As a group, their work and contribution to the conservation of military vehicles conservation is highly significant,” said Nik. “There are so many interesting examples in private hands – and this is a great opportunity to see some of them in action alongside our own collection of armour.”
Inside the Museum, there will be talks focusing on the World War Two soldiers, World War Two tanks, and the opportunity to learn more about Tiger 131.
