Preserved ex-Western and Southern National 262, ETT956, a Bristol LL5G with a 1955 ECW B39F body, new as L5G in June 1938. It's seen picking up alongside the "George" on the A350 at Longbridge Deverill during the Wiltshire Vintage Bus Running Day, having run in from further afield.
It entered service with Western National in June 1938 as a L5G model with a Mumford B31R body which was later destroyed by enemy action. A Beadle B34R body was fitted as a replacement and then in the chassis was lengthened to 30ft long LL5G standard and a new ECW B39R body fitted in August 1955. In June 1963 it passed to Southern National (source Gerry Tormey's Bristol SU site) before being sold into preservation in 1966. Long-term caring owners are Cotswold PSV Group, Stroud from November 1970.
