Details: Another Cavalcade participant that required towing was AEC Renown LT165. This was given a suspended rear tow by a Scania recovery vehicle belonging to J&A Recovery. Curiously, there is no registration plate visible on the front of the Scania, although looking at other photographs suggests that this is in fact CS02REC. I also discovered that this vehicle has previously been illustrated working for C Spearing. Note the slightly saggy appearance of the preserved bus, and the way the rear axles seem to rest horizontally. This photograph was taken at Hyde Park Corner in the morning. By coincidence, another bus numbered LT165 probably passed here soon afterwards, this being one of the Wright 'New Bus for London' vehicles allocated to London United's route 10.

Andrew ColebourneThe towing vehicle was CS02REC; having photographed it towing LT165 away in the evening without noting its registration I was also surprised to see it didn't have a registration number displayed on the front. However the rear views I took confirmed it. Also notable was that LT165 was towed from the front in the evening.Sat 28/06/2014, 14:31
Thomas YoungI have learned the reason for this vehicle not having a front number plate. There is a slightly over-zealous penalty camera where this vehicle is normally parked. Presumably it was an oversight that the plate was not refitted when it ventured out on this date.Sun 29/06/2014, 11:21
