Halifax Joint Omnibus Committee Coat of Arms incorporating the individual coats of arms of Halifax Corporation, and the LMS and LNER railway companies - as re-applied to Regent III/Park Royal 277 to commemorate the Corporation's 70th Anniversary in 1968.
277 had been delivered in 1950, actually a couple of years after the railway companies had been nationalised and become British Railways. It is noteworthy that the insignia at the bottom centre had the letters 'HJC' intertwined, and not 'HJOC'. Many years later 277's preservationist owner Tony Blackman formed his own company 'Halifax Joint Committee' (without the word 'Omnibus') and used the 'HJC' insignia.
