The aim of the Historical Arms & Military Society (HAMST) is to preserve and promote all the aspects of historical arms, militaria of any kind, and military history. The Society is not a para-military organization and in no way glorifies or supports the concepts of war. It has over 100 members and is actively involved in the community. The society's intention is to relive military history through re-enactments, displays and commemoration events, to  ensure the military sacrifice and history of our Australian forces are never forgotten.

The society promotes the lawful interest of Military Medals, Uniforms, Vehicles, Ammunition, Bayonets, Artillery, Swords, Helmets, Headwear, Knives and War Souvenirs. HAMST have a number of Sub Groups - Historical Military Vehicles, Women at War, Re-enacting, Research and Model making groups. Many members enjoy recreational and target shooting and we encourage the responsible ownership and safe handling of firearms.  

Meetings are held at the Glenorchy HAMST clubrooms 322 Main Road, Glenorchy (opposite Glenorchy Police Station) 7.00 - 9pm, (clubrooms open at 5.30 pm) on the last Friday of each month. Meetings include a variety of guest speakers who give in-depth presentations of our military history for us to all enjoy. We also encourage junior members (accompanied by parent or guardian member) to become an active part of the life of the society.
