FCK431, Ribble 931, was one of the forty Leyland PSU1/15 Royal Tigers new to Ribble in 1953. Twenty-five had superb Leyland C41C bodies whilst fifteen, including 931, had Burlingham Seagull C32C bodies for use on extended tours from 1953 to 1961 when they were altered to C41C. All fifteen of the Burlingham ones passed to Millburn Motors (dealer), Preston in 1967 with 931 being licensed by Millburn from May to August 1968 before passing to J. Smart and Company (contractors) Limited, Edinburgh in September. It was sold for scrap by April 1971.
