Due to the photocopying prowess of Les, pages of the official Department of Defence purchasing book has been made available which detail the buying and selling of around 260 Mokes and 90 Moke trailers from 1969 to 1980.

Les made the copies of the pages many years ago and over the years has offered copies to clubs and individuals, I got my copy back in 2006, and has been an invaluable record for determine the authentic Military Mokes.

The list is a basic ledger type listing providing the date some internal order numbers, body number, engine prefix and serial number and year of production for each Moke or trailer. On the reverse side of the previous page there are then details relating to the disposal of the Moke at a later date when it was released when and where it was sold.

The short hand approach, different writing styles and the use of 'ditto' a hell of lot means that it has been a difficult document to transpose into a spreadsheet but that has been achieved by Andrew P.(MoeMoke). However because of the inconsistent nature of the entries we cant confirm some of the details until the Moke shows up and we can read the compliance plate so as a general guide it is good, but not yet exact.

Some of the information has been entered into the Australian Moke Register so people can use it to check if there own vehicle is a Military Moke but the AMR needs to undergo another major rewrite for it to become really useful.

Anything to add?

Perhaps you own or owned a Moke that is displayed on this page, if you do recognise any of the Mokes pictured here and can offer more information and or photos to help record their history then please get in touch via the contact page.
