Rose Bros (Primrose) of Chelmsford LHK412, a Leyland PS1/1 with Duple C35F body, new to the City Coach Company in December 1946 but exchanged with Rose for a Daimler CVD6 in May 1950.

Later it was sold to Maroon Coaches, Woodford Green 6/54, then to A Piper, Middx for a trip to Poland 7/64, then via Arlington Motors (dealer) to Mrs J Leamy, Crawley 2/65 as caravan and finally to White, Buxted for scrap 6/67. Rose Bros sold out to Eastern National in 1958.

Two more of this batch stayed with City Coach and ended up in the ENOC fleet, click here for a photo taken in Colchester in 1960.
