98. ERU402L
Uncertain which gallery might allocate to this one? We are getting into the "bread van" era, and while I never considered them to be "real buses", they were certainly part of the "small is economical" thinking which was about to be inflicted on the travelling public. Bournemouth M2, ERU402L, was a Ford with Strachan B16F body, new in May 1973.

99. ERU403L
An ugly duckling in beautiful surroundings, Bournemouth M3, ERU403L, was a Bedford VAS3 with Strachans B27F body built in 1973 to provide transport in pedestrian areas and to/from car parks in the town centre, when such services were thought to be necessary.

100. OLJ404M
Perhaps this view of Bournemouth M4, OLJ404M, will redeem the inclusion of identical bus M3 in the "Ugly Buses Ball" gallery , perhaps due to the stunning sea front location. (or maybe not)!

101. TJT187X
Bournemouth Marshall bodied Olympian 187, TJT187X, at Bournemouth Square on 2nd June 1986. It is not amphibious, so the Alderney it is heading for is unlikely to be the one in the Channel Islands!
