G.W. Osborne of Tollesbury AEC Renown, 8071ML with Park Royal H44/31F body which joined the Osborne fleet in late 1963.
8071ML started life as a demonstrator in 1962 - it was the first Renown to be completed - and was exhibited at the Commercial Vehicle Show at Earls Court in September that year. For a time during 1963 it was in the London Transport Country fleet as RX1. It stayed in service with Osbornes until 1979 when it was sold into preservation - it is currently in Holland.

Photo taken Saturday 17 April 1965, Colchester Bus Station
