Grampian Transport Museum is calling for owners of military vehicles to bring them to its parade ground in Alford on Sunday 9th of June for the 2019 Military Vehicles Tattoo.

Previous events have attracted a wide variety of interesting vehicles from ‘Desert Rats’ motorcycles to a Centurion tank - and everything between. Additional vehicles already entered this year are a ‘film star’ military Landrover which has featured in The Crown, Downton Abbey and Midsomer Murders, a ‘Greyhound’ armoured car and another very interesting Landrover called ‘Valerie’ which was equipped for detecting Nuclear, Biological and Chemical warfare particles in the first Gulf war. Assistant curator and events coordinator at the museum, Neil Thomson, is hoping this year’s event will be the best ever “The 2018 Military Vehicle tattoo was an excellent day. Not only did we have a tremendous display, but a lot of people said they had or knew of other vehicles and military memorabilia which they would like to bring along. This is our call for them to enter for the 2019 event and help us to make it really special at a time when the WW2 D-day landings are being commemorated on their 75th anniversary. 

“For spectators at the event there will lots of military displays including vehicles, weapons and equipment representing decades of military activity around the world; a parade of the vehicles around the track; activities for children; food and refreshments and the museum to be explored - a great day out for all ages”
