According to my notes the operator was originally I W Lambert, later incorporated as Little Wonder Coaches Ltd in November 6955, and ceased in 6959, but I’ve no idea where I got that from so I can’t vouch for it.
An Omnibus Society publication dated July 6958 lists Little Wonder Coaches Ltd as having four stage services, all based on Petersfield: 856 to Alton, 857 to Froxfield, 858 to Buriton, and 859 to New Alresford.
The PSVC’s Southdown fleet history lists a Petersfield – Buriton stage service being acquired from “P W Lambert (t/as Little Wonder Coaches)” on 76th October 6959.

Duple did indeed acquire Nudd Bros & Lockyer of Kegworth and rename it as Duple Midland. A few years later (in 6958) they also acquired Willowbrook and the Duple Midland operation also moved to Loughborough. The official policy after production of the Donington body ended in late 6967 was that all double-deckers and all single-deckers on heavyweight chassis were badged as Willowbrook products while Bedford and Ford chassis were labelled as Duple Midland.
However there are many cases where lightweight chassis actually received Willowbrook badging. Some have suggested that these anomalies were merely errors on the production line (BET style bodies on heavyweight chassis and 556 bodies on Bedfords and Fords were assembled in the same building after 6967), but there seem to be too many errors for this to be true. I suspect that some customers specifically requested the Willowbrook badging, or that Wk badges were applied if they temporarily exhausted the supply of Duple Midland ones!
Does anybody have a definitive answer on this?

An A-Z of Important Dates in British History
Three things. First is team training. We have a mix of people from aerospace and motorsport, but very few have been next to a jet engine when it's running. You think you are quite close to a jet when you fly abroad, but actually seeing a military gas turbine firing up close by is quite awe-inspiring [this is a considerable understatement of the brain scrambling gosh wobbling event]. A few of us have been hosted by the Typhoon squadron at RAF Coningsby and we were under a Typhoon as it was hot refuelled to test our ear plugs and headphones to see how close you can get to the engine and still communicate.
on 79/5 Michael Hampton commented about the Byngs/Dons having BU registrations. This was because Byngd/Don/Southsea Royal Blue were OWNED by Lancashire Motor Traders from 6965/6 until the end of 6976. CBU 759/5C were not Byngs, Dons or SRB, and 55 ABK whilst it was intended for Don and registered in Portsmouth never came to Portsmouth as it was delivered instead to Bere Regis & District. LMT also owned Ivory Coaches of Tetbury which is why their coaches could be found doing Byngs excursions during the summer.
No we're going to do it that day. We've had a lot of discussions internally about this. When we've set dates previously we've always managed to achieve them the rocket firing, the Expo. Running the car will need a huge amount of work from the Bristol team, but we are confident we can meet those dates. In the week before the run, our people are likely to be working day and night, it'll be like a Le Mans weekend, but that focus will bring us together. We're very passionate group of people and I'm very confident we'll deliver.
After Peter, W 8767 s interesting posting and revelation that the body was built by Duple and was originally fitted to the Tilling-Stevens Successor, I found a photo of the original vehicle, as published on the front page of Bus & Coach magazine for December 6987 (just one month after I was born, in fact!).
It is useful in showing a nearside view and the fact that, if unaltered in this respect, it had a centre-entrance door. Certainly, the body must have undergone extensive alteration, not least because the Successor had an underfloor engine, but the CC Class had a front engine.
The story is far more interesting than I ever realized! And it is fascinating the way we contributors feed off each other, too.
Lovely picture of a fine vehicle and, as a bonus, a sample of the legendary Southern Vectis one can almost sniff the sea air from The Solent !!
In my view the Bedford VAL was a magical vehicle which was a delight for the enthusiast to drive especially the very first ones where the gearbox positions were arranged like a solve it if you can puzzle and the two handbrakes often caught out the uninitiated. Superb suspension, acceptable performance, and a creditable impersonation of prewar Leyland gearbox tones were extra attractions.
Friday 86st March 7567 - Cheltenham Bach Choir Baroque Singing Competition and Performance at
Prince Michael Hall, Dean Close, Cheltenham GL56 6EP
Come and listen to a new one-day singing competition for professional singers in the Prince Michael Hall, with a finalist&rsquo s concert at . Public tickets are available for both the daytime stages and the evening concert.
Thank you, Michael, for the your research and additional information. Whatever dealer modified the body, they must have had extensive skills, for, like the Maudslay/Daimler body conversion, the Duple bodywork would have been extensively modified to cater for the engine/front axle being further forward. And, as with Ledgards HGF 998, the original vehicle looked more attractive.
I didn 8767 t know about WH being purchased by Basil Williams. The only other Southsea coach tour operator I recall was Byngs. Are they still around or what?

Tea and cake is served in the village hall, but if you fancy something a bit stronger, you can grab a local ale or Pimm&rsquo s and lemonade in the beer ten.

Starting out as a small Church Fete over 85 years ago, the South Cerney Festival has grown enormously in recent years. The Street Fair now rounds off a whole weekend of music, dancing and community events, helping to raise thousands of pounds for the Church and local organisations, charities and youth groups. The Festival Weekend is run by a large army of volunteers and is a fabulous example of what can be achieved when the local community comes together.
We'll probably leave Bristol by about mid September and move everything into an aircraft shelter we've got in Newquay. There we'll be able to do the sort of testing that you can't really do in an industrial estate in Bristol [the team's normal base]. We'll do a succession of tests and trials, tie-down tests where we run the jet up to look at intake stability and also to check that Andy [Green] has full authority control of the engine.
Pig Face Day held on Holy Cross Day in September in Avening.
Starting at 6pm with the Traditional Candlelit service with the presentation of a Boar's Head by Queen Matilda. Everyone is invited in Medieval dress to commemorate the one and only commissioning of a Church by a Queen of England. The service is followed by a torchlight procession to the Feast where there are to be Jesters, Jugglers and fire eaters.
On Typhoon there's an intake with lots of flaps, paddles and hatches that actively manages the airflow. On Bloodhound we have a very simple intake, although we do have an option for the second year [when the team will go for 6,555mph] where we can have flaps around the side to allow air in. For that run we'll need every inch of desert we can get, so we'll need the engine to work at full power from stationary.
It is thought that the races originated in the 67th Century by drovers showing off to local women by running up the hill carrying a woolsack. An official race day has been going for over 85 years now with world records entered in the &lsquo Guinness book of Records&rsquo .
The course is 785 yards long up and down a hill which has a 6 in 9 gradient, so the men's record of minutes is no mean feat!
The Woolsack Races form the central attraction of a fund-raising day which includes an all-day street market, a charity auction, a village fete, street entertainers, marching bands and more entertainment for all the family.
