Details: Another of the four former airport service AEC Regals later used as uniform issue units makes an appearance on LTSV now with this photo of 1467W at Chiswick Works on 12th August 1974. The substantial wooden shelving fitted inside is visible through the windows in the back, while the rear emergency exit has been retained. The one on the offside is obviously no longer usable, and although most of the windows appear to still be in situ, they have been painted out. Note also the tow bar used to attach the trailers (I presume they probably also sometimes used trailers when in airport use) and also the unusual white outline roundel.

Kim RennieThe white outline roundel looks like the type fitted to MB-family vehicles for a time Fri 12/03/2021, 19:26
Thomas YoungIt seems I didn't do enough research when writing this caption! These buses did not have a door in the rear when new. There was instead a large boot, the top hinges of which were more-or-less in line with the beading band (which originally wrapped around the rear). Above this were the registration plate (flanked by indicator lights), then two destination blinds (side-by-side) and finally the two windows as seen above. The rear door and towing attachment were added when the vehicles were converted to service vehicles, and the rear lights were also replaced. Thanks to Ian D for spotting this.Sun 14/03/2021, 18:04
