Details: Along with Derek Everson and John Marshall, Malcolm has also been sending in some 'vintage' photos. This Ford D recovery truck was photographed at the Metrobus garage in Orpington sometime in the late 1980s. I'm not sure if it was actually a Metrobus vehicle though. It appears to have been delivering (or collecting) the DMS parked behind. Notably this carries the livery of Davies of Rye. Davies bought DMS702 and DM1725 in the early 1980s, but the identity of the one shown here is not known. It had possibly been acquired by Metrobus as a source of spares for their own former DMS buses. ALE861H was last licensed in 1991. Note the rather humungous front bumper, perhaps a balance weight.
