3. UU6646
In the discussion on my photo of T1 at Hornchurch Garage Peter Stobart commented that it should have been the original LGOC T1. I cannot manage a photo of that, but as a next best thing, here is one of the same batch, T31 UU6646, at Chiswick in March or April 1956. Most of these buses were withdrawn by 1949, although a few (most of which had been refurbished) survived until 1953 on a route at Walton-on-Thames where a weight restriction precluded use of anything else.
Photo taken March/April 1956, London Chiswick

A Timpson & Sons 264, GN7264, a 1931 AEC Regal with Harrington C31R bodywork. The driver looks justifiably proud of his coach. This coach was requisitioned by the War Dept in 1940 and never returned to Timpsons.

Bodybuilder's pre-delivery photo of Southend Corporation 152, JN822, one of a batch of seven AEC Regals with English Electric B30D bodies, new in March 1931, although they didn't enter service until the following year.

AEC Regal/English Electric single deckers 203 (front, JN823) and 204 (back, JN824) at the Corporation depot, probably in 1951. Survivors of a batch of seven vehicles delivered in 1930, in their later years these two led a fairly quiet existence. Their normal use was on school contracts and they spent much of the time parked where they are in this photo.

Photo taken Sunday 13 February 1955, Corporation yard, Southend
14. JN825
Southend Regal 205, JN825, in Warrior Square. From the blinds it appears to be on the Warrior Square-Southchuch service which ran between January 1942 (when the trams ceased east of Southchurch Avenue) and April 1942 (when the last trams were withdrawn). Presence of wartime white paint on wings and masked headlights also confirms that photo taken during the war.

26. FV4548
Here is an update for everyone on the new livery of FV4548 which has been externally painted by Reliance Coach Works of Stoke-on-Trent. It's probably near to a Standerwick livery but I'm willing to be corrected on that.

It was downseated to B35F by Reliance and was waiting to depart to Cold Ash from Newbury when photographed.

The pedestrian seems to be expressing some disbelief at the sight of West Riding 188, HL7406, an AEC Regal with Duple C33F body new to Bullock & Sons in 1936, arriving in Wakefield Bus Station. This was acquired with the Bullock business in 1950.
