Forest Greyhound Grenadier BOF857C resting after running to Weston-super-Mare, one of 6 Harrington Grenadier bodied AEC Reliances (3 long and 3 shorter like this one) new to Bowen, Birmingham in March 1965, serving until 1971/72. This one passed to Percy Grindle of Cinderford, who traded as Forest Greyhound to distinguish his business (set up in 1927) from that of his father (H.R.Grindle) who had started with horse-drawn carriages. H.R.Grindle was later joined by Percy's brother Roy. BOF857C was in the fleet from March 1972 until August 1974, passing then to Nadder Valley, Tisbury.
