                    New Container Has Arrived 
For the last 2 years the committee has been  discussing the need for our society to have a second container. Due to prudent financial management and the assistance of Fleet Containers our container arrive today which is fantastic. Pete, Robbie and I have started shelving which should be completed in a week or two and with a coat of paint it will be a real asset for the society.                                    
 

                           ANZAC Day 2024   
Once again it was a privilege for members to be involved in local ANZAC day ceremonies'. Our members were invited to represent HAMST at the Hobart Parade with a variety of vehicles and our WW1 nurses laid a wreath during the ceremony. We also had members laying wreaths at the Glenorchy 11am service and a military display at the local Lenah Valley RSL. Thank you all so much for your efforts during the day it was our busiest for the society but due to our members commitment all went very smoothly with many positive comments during the day.

 

                                                Clubrooms Working B    
Recently HAMST members gathered at the clubrooms for a general working B. This was another great time for around a dozen members working together to tidy the clubrooms, kitchen, vehicles and paint our container. A special thanks to Britt at Wattyl paints and her team for suppling the paint for the container and Richard for a sensational lunch of satay chicken and rice. Thank you so much for those who were able to assist for a few hours.            
 

                                                           Queenstown Visit   
Last weekend members visited a fellow member, Matt at Queenstown where we were able to spend some quality time in his shed. Matt has an impressive collection of Weapons carriers including a Command car. Matt has a wealth of knowledge and it was a real privilege to be able to visit and spend some time with him. The highlight of the visit was certainly a zip around the streets of Queenstown as passengers in the Command car. Thanks Matt, it was a great day.                            
 

                                                  New Addition To HAMST Stable 

Recently HAMST members received a call of a local 1945 Ford Jeep that had been stored for the last 40 years. On inspection this time capsule was able to be acquired by members where it will be slowly restored to pristine condition. This is a great find and another invaluable military vehicle to be paraded at Remembrance events in the future
 

        War Animals Remembrance Campbell town   
 

This year we were once again invited to support the War Animals Remembrance in Campbell town. Several members and two vehicles attended representing HAMST which was much apricated by the organizers. The event was well supported by military groups and as always it is great to catch up with our northern friends to support these events.  Thank you Terese for organizing this and many living history events year after year to ensure our military history is never forgotten. Special mention to Andy & Pete for supplying their Jeep & Landrover after a very bumpy trip I'm sure!
