A surprise acquisition by Southend in 1955 was a batch of seven utility bodied Daimlers from Eastern National.

The six which entered service took the numbers 242-7, previously used by the second hand AECs of the early 1950s. All but one were later converted to open top and had long lives in this form (one, 244, survives today at the Castle Point Transport Museum). The only one not so converted, 243, FOP417, is on the Western Circular, by now route 29, in Fairfax Drive on 21st April 1956.
