1969 was a watershed year for British coach builders as it marked the entry of Caetano into the previously insular British market. One of the first to enter service was this Bedford VAL14 owned by Dewsbury independent Stanley Gath, FHD856G.
It is seen at Trowell services on the M1 bound for the Rugby League Cup Final in the year it was delivered. The final was won by Castleford who beat Salford 11-6
