Hants & Dorset 1013, FEL425D, a Bristol MW6G with the usual ECW coach body, of C39F layout when new, and dedicated to Holiday Tours work - note the signs instead of indicators.
Renumbered from the original 901 to 1013 in 1971, we see what I have read elsewhere as the influence of the 'dead hand of the NBC'. She's in the yard of Southampton depot, Grosvenor Square, during the lunch break on a dull day in March 1974. Note, however the even more jarring note than usual - DP (sorry, 'local coach') livery but still showing HOLIDAY tours. Some if not all had this changed to DAY tours later.
