Thomas Bros MTG172 is an AEC Regal IV 9821S from the fleet of Thomas Bros, Port Talbot. She was built in 1953 and has a Burlingham coach body.
BLOTW mentions C41C but the PSVC listing for 2015 shows C--F. Was the position of the door moved at some point? I have read that she spent some time - after this view was taken - with the travelling community.
She is on Itchen Bridge while taking part in the Southampton City Transport Centenary rally on 6 May 1979. The spire on the right of the view is that of St Mary's, as in "The Bells Of St Mary's".
