VLW was London series with G (Aug 68 to July 69) or M (April - June 74).

Not recognised as the average LD ambulance etc but after looking for examples with divided windscreen, I think now its a one piece windscreen and there is a support post beside the driver's seat.

I'm thinking Bedford CA MkII or MkIII but not certain.

Bedford gave the clue - VLW 688G - 1969 Bedford CALV Ambulance by Lomas built as London Transport Service Vehicle (vehicle 1532B) at Chiswick depot, sold off in 1985.

LT apparently had 2 of these - the other was vehicle 1492B (SMK 783F), new in May 1968 and based at Aldenham until also sold off in 1985, now owned by the London Bus Preservation Trust. Both survive.

CALV is the standard factory built van, this should be CALZ - CA long wheelbase chassis-scuttle intended to be bodied by outside builders.

edit: Just to add I'm a bit surprised I managed to guess this and for dsl to confirm it so quickly.

The small area seen of the dash panel in the thumbnail, registered with me for some reason, that it could be a CA van
