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 paramilitary organization and in no way glorifies or supports the concepts of war. It has round 100 members and is actively involved in the community, reliving 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, Headware, Knives and War Souvenirs. It has an active shooting club which encourages the responsible ownership and safe handling of firearms to be used on approved ranges.
Meetings are held at the Glenorchy HAMST clubrooms 322 Main Road, Glenorchy (opposite Glenorchy Police Station) 7.00 - 9pm, (clubrooms open at 6pm) 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.
