AEC Regent with Weymann L27/26R bodies, new in 1938.
Southend took delivery of seven more Regents, 211-217, in the summer of 1938, this time with attractive Weymann lowbridge bodies.
Most were withdrawn in 1956, only 213 lasting until the following year. All went for scrap.
Many thanks to Richard Delahoy for his kind permission to include extracts from his book in this page and to Brian Pask and Ian Banks for supplying some of the photos.
