Buses to wartime London.

Recommended Posts

By October 1940 many of our capitals buses had been damaged or destroyed by enemy bombing. The Transport Ministry appealed to operators around the country for the loan of any surplus vehicles that could be made available. Amongst many others Sheffield sent a sizable contingent of AEC Regents, though they were returned by December 1940 due to our losses in the Sheffield blitz. I have not been able to find any snaps those buses whilst they were down there, though I did come across ex Sheffield Leyland Titan 180 circa 1930, WE 8780.  W/E.
