The Arran Heritage Museum hosted a display of classic military vehicles at its Rosaburn home in Brodick last Sunday.

It was staged by the south west branch of Scottish Military Vehicles Group, who brought five restored vehicles to Arran for the first time and spent the weekend on the island.

The group are a collection of enthusiasts who own, restore and run military vehicles. While many of the vehicles in Scotland are of Second World War  vintage, there are also quite a number of  post war types.

The group’s membership is spread over the whole of Scotland with members supporting events such as Armed Forces Day, Remembrance Day, Poppy Day and regimental and veteran reunions, as well as various military and vintage vehicle events held throughout the UK and Europe.
