Dervish,

Long hours of picking up tid-bits and compiling them. The data is far from complete, but it does throw up the occasional gem.

Hi, I have found the log books in both my Perenties to be very detailed and let me verify Km's, major works done, identified issues that hadn't been rectified from last service prior to auction. But also where it had been allocated or deployed.

Attached photo shows 48-664 spent 10 years in Afghanistan - just needs a bit of knowledge to decyfer some of the acronyms and hand writing. It also showed 48-664 had 3 x new transfer cases, 1 x new firewall, etc etc then full stripdown and rebuild (not just clean and put back together) coming back into Aust - it's rough on the outside from 10 years of hard life but rock solid mechanically - love it!

Certainly the GM120 adds a lot of value to your knowledge of the vehicle and aids in the decision making when going to auction but doesn't change the vehicle and a physical inspection is the only way to really assess the vehcile.

That's my view anyway....

Actually I think Mike has released a book, if someone can put the link to that again I might spend some hard earned cash

I forgot about that, he did indeed!  I suspect the ones I am chasing are not in there though.  only relating to stock and vehicle movements.

You might be surprised: there are more than 10,000 entries in the book!

http://www.virtualbookworm.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Store_Code=bookstore&Screen=PROD&Product_Code=australian_military_abbreviations_acronyms_codes

I should also mention that I'm still collecting abbreviations and adding them to the database, so if anyone finds anything that isn't in the book (and that can be verified as to meaning) then please feel free to let me know. There is also that request along with the email address in the book. I've already added another 1,000 or so to the DB since the book was published.

I'll post a bit here incase anytbody knows precisely what it all means.

I really want to understand what these ledgers mean, but they are broken up into different sections.  as below.  what does each section mean?

Earmarks
Loans
Replenishment Issues
Stock Category Transfer
Unit Returns
Replenishment stock category transfer
depot transfer
unit transfer


Other abbreviations that appear, and are unknown are:

TSERNO
Unit UDC (Unit Description/Depot Code?)
PR1
Authority No
Cat From
Cat To  (changing from different categories? now to decypher what the numbers actually mean as categories)
LTL (Long Term Loan?)
From SCC
To SCC (Stock Category Code? and what is that?)

I may have a answer to some of these questions, I just need to print them and ask the right person........you will not believe how lucky I was recently, I met the operator that was driving my Perentie for the last three years, and when I told him I had no service history he printed it out for me, and delivered it to me, he explained what some of the abbreviations meant, and some of the wording but I was so gob smack that it just blue in the one ear and out the other.
I do have contact with him and will ask him what the words and phrases mean, I hope I will be able to add some decryption to the forum.

I don't know if you guys know this, and I could remember this, if you look at FFRMAN's logbook the section that has the following abbreviations in the beginning,
FF= Fully Functional
RU= Restricted Use
XX= Unserviceable/not usable

Sorry if you guys already knew.

My RFSV has its original logbook with every entry in it. I'm sure sixty'a name would be in there if I looked hard enough.

Possibly...my squiggle will appear in quite a few GM120s since the early 90's  😎

I think there was a member's logbook showing 1300hrs. It takes the cake so far.

Mine didn't quite reach that


it then went to Alice Springs where it was rarely used :)
