Road vehicle; B-type LGOC open top motor bus bonnet No B340 registration mark LA9928, 1911

B-type LGOC open top motor bus, registration mark LA9928, 1911 The B-type is the earliest mass-produced motor bus in the world. This particular bus was used during the First World War in home defence work. Many other B-types, however, were used to transport troops to the Western Front. It is hard to imagine what it was like to drive them under shell-fire. The open cabin gave no protection to the driver. Katherine
