FMO938, Bristol LL6B with ECW B39R body, new in August 1950 to Thames Valley Traction Co. no. 556.
Withdrawn in 9/60 and transferred to United Welsh at Swansea, still numbered 556. Withdrawn in 1966, it passed first to Precelley Motors, Clynderwen, but soon moved on to Jones Motor Services, Login, with whom it ran for 10 years from 9/68. I believe this view was taken whilst it was with Jones, but the location and date is unfortunately unrecorded. After Jones it entered preservation, and after passing through several owners it was acquired by Tyler, Worcester, who still owns it, and it has been restored to full Thames Valley livery, taking part in the Thames Valley 100 Celebrations in 2015 (see more photos), its first rally in over a decade.
In the background is our family Standard Vanguard that was successfully identified in the Coastal Bus Service Leyland Royal Tiger view.
