We had a very successful 86th MVA Reunion on April 22nd 2023 at Pontlands Park.
105 veterans attended, slightly more than last year and the feedback is that the food and service was good.
Our President for 2023 is Veteran Chris Neale.
Our Honoured Guest was Alan Pamphilon.
If you did not come but would like to pay your MVA subscription you can still do this from here (but click not-coming).
Our 2024 MVA Reunion is on Saturday 20th April 2024 - make a note in your diary. A poll was held about doing the reunion on other days, and considering the result the committee have decided to continue with Saturday for the reunion.

We are now collecting articles for the 2025 Newsletter if you have any
