This view taken inside Chiswick Works on 24th April 1967 shows three service vehicles. The main subject is Bedford CAV Ambulance 976B, then over 13 years old. It was to last another two years before replacement by CALV model 1532B. On the right is Bedford-Lacre sweeper BL2, while on the far left is a small grey or cream van. I'm not certain but this could be one of the four Beford HAV vans delivered between 1964 and April 1967 (1373B, 1382B, 1383B and 1405B). Also visible, reflected in the windows of the bus from which the photograph was taken, is what appears to be a GS-class bus in white livery. This was probably a St.Johns Ambulance vehicle.

The van on the left looks more like an Anglia 307E than a Viva van.

Hmm, looking at the distance between the offside rear light and the windows... I think you may be right!

The GS bus was former GS47, as seen here:
