110 VIN to military registration match up

For a friend, I am trying to help him sort out the UK MOD registration number of his vehicle.

It was imported to Canada a number of years ago and has gone through several hands before landing in his.

There are no plates giving it's military registration number like 25 KJ 65.

He has the VIN of the vehicle and a funny bar code from the MOD on the side of the seat box shown below.

If there is anyone here who can help us please speak up.

To my knowledge there is not a register anywhere that relates VIN to military registration, there is the other way around, sometimes.

Thanks in advance

Robin

As you probably know, there's usually a large plate on the side of the seatbox which has the NSN, military reg, asset code and contract number on it.


I've got some documents and manuals at home that I kept when I left REME, which are mid to late 80's and early 90's 90 & 110 info, which has some info on the vehicle specs and what the designation was. I'll look and see if that barcode above correlates to anything.
I'm not sure of the VIN will help me, but I may ask for it later on... I can't remember if my books have VIN numbers in them or not.


cheers for now

that bar-code looks exactly like the standard military logistics bar-code that tracks inventory and all. If it was still in their system it would show all the details you need, if it was scanned by MOD Logs guy. The bar-code system makes it way nicer to track assets than to poke around around looking for a S/N on a 1000 different widgets.

Diesel Jim it is missing that plate, hence the request.

Elbee thanks but so far MOD on an FOI request have sent back a no results answer

Doing an FOI based on the VIN. Not hopeful


Anyone got any other ideas?
