World Federation of Hungarian Veterans – Vancouver Chapter

The MHBK is the World Federation of Hungarian Veterans, or Magyar Harcosok Bajtársi Közössége. A strong Hungarian veteran’s movement existed in Hungary from shortly after the First World War until 1945. After W.W.II, the new communist government forbade such organizations, and consequently the nation’s veterans were left without any representation. In 1946 the MHBK was formed outside of Hungary to serve the many veterans who were forced to leave their homeland. There are several thousand MHBK members around the world, and now Vancouver’s 33 members are once again contributing to the promotion and preservation of Hungary’s military history. The Vancouver Chapter publishes the very popular bi-monthly newsletter ‘Magyar Front’ and has been an inspiration to other Hungarian enthusiasts around the world.
