Southdown Bristol VRTSL6G/ECW 2100, OCD770G, in Brighton in April 1972. One of ten VRs ordered by BH&D, but (with the exception of 2093) actually delivered in March 1969 to Southdown. For the first three years of their lives the OCD-G batch were operated in full BH&D livery.
2100 was repainted in Southdown green/cream livery two months after this photograph was taken, the whole batch being re-allocated to the Portsmouth area upon delivery of newer dual-door VRs in 1972 for use on former BH&D routes.
