On Saturday the 5th of November cars in the car park at Ilkeston Morrisons were joined again by military vehicles. The vehicles this year were two scimitars (combat vehicle reconnaissance (tracked) or CVR(T) for short and part of armoured fighting vehicle or (AFV) for short in service with the British army; and one Land Rover Wolf, that’s the new Land Rover that took over the 90 and 110.  I say new, but I think it’s been in service about 20 years.   They do have many more vehicles in their arsenal.  The team with the vehicles were Justin

Baines, Callie Baines, Chris McMillan, Malcolm McMillan and Mark Simmons. This is the second year running they have given up their free time to raise money for the Poppy Appeal in Ilkeston. All of us who raise money in this way are very grateful for their help and support every year and can’t wait for the next. MP Maggie Throup  joined the team in the afternoon  and I know Maggie enjoys the military vehicles as did everyone who stopped by to see them. New members are urgently needed so come on all you veterans, come and join us.  If you are interested contact our Membership Secretary Terry Hill.  Email:  terry.hill1@andypandy1950.plus.com or phone  0115 944 3066.
