Solent Overlord Executive Military Collectors Club (SOE)


SOE Banner

 
The lineage of the club stretches back over 40 years to the founding of the Military Vehicle Conservation Group (MVCG) in 1968, by a group of WW2 military vehicle enthusiasts based in Worthing.
Interest in military vehicle ownership, particularly from WW2 continued to grow and in 1968 a local group based in Portsmouth was formed. 


This group undertook the organisation and running of a military vehicle show to commemorate the Normandy landings. The Overlord Show.


To secure the future and success of further shows, a new independent club was formed in 2004. Solent Overlord Executive Military Vehicle Club (SOE) was renamed in 2008 as the Solent Overlord Executive Military Collectors Club. 
This new title reflected the club memberís wider interests in military vehicles, and also military history, weapons and equipment and the ever increasing popularity of living history re-enactment.


The club continues to grow, attracting members interested in all aspects of the military, and with a strong social club network organises guest speakers on club nights, visits to museums, and to important historical sites.


Solent Overlord Executive meet on the 4th Thursday of each month
at the Village Hall.
 
Meetings start at 8 pm.
