My Moke is slowly being dismantled but will be there in spirit! Is there anyopportunity to view all the mokes either before or after the parade, as I would like to see some real live mokes! - I have newly become an owner so am needing much help and advise on restoration .... James :)

47 pages of photos from the parade - not one pic of the Mokes!!!
TV coverage was pretty bleak as well!

Hope you guys have enjoyed the parade.
Unfortunately the Mokes didn´t appear well in TV. I just noticed from the speaker "...we have a nice collection of Mokes..." and they´ve already showed the next group. :( :(
Waiting for pictures...

I watched a very broken online video stream until 3.15 and didn't see them. I'd like to see it though, has anyone got a link to the clip of them?

Ken posted a couple of TV images of the Mokes on Facebook earlier so they definitely went out on at least one channel.

Deano, I saw Ken's pics, was hoping to see live action. Thought you or Ken would be the blokes to find a link though. Looked all over Youtube and only found cheer leaders, bands and steam engines.
Please post if you find anything, Cheers

Well done Andy despite the weather getting battered by spray on the M1 on the way home , being soaked to the skin we had a great time , the band were great and took every thing in there stride. Yes we were tight for room after people did not turn up who promised they would. The coverage on the telly was sparse i belive but all that is out of our control. True mokers turn out in any weather.
