When used by American servicemen in the UK the word 'bloke' means Englishman, as in a local. Because of the similarity between English and American-English languages it is common place for the US serviceman to fraternize with the indigent, local population, especially in pubs. The word 'bloke' allows US servicemen to identify someone as a local indigent.

Aussie term for a male Australian.
You do not use it in the same context as “Guy” or “Guys” In other words you do not call a group of men and women “Hey you blokes”. The term Bloke is exclusively for the fair dinkum Aussie man.
