Described as WW2 seaplane base on Loch Ryan (with a Sunderland behind - see main page), so near Stranraer or Cairnryan; Kirkcolm and Ardwell in route board are local villages so seems correct. Bus line is Caledonian.

Plate is HDx x62 or HD xx62 - might even be HD 4362. HD 1234 was Dewsbury series (West Yorks) April 1913 to Nov 53, with 4362 being very early 1931. The only pre-WW2 HDx combination was HDH - Walsall, Aug 1939 to Feb 1943, and none of the HDx permutations were issued in Scotland.

Looks to be an all Leyland Titan TD1 but being Scotland the coachwork could be local supply. However, the picture is taken during WW2 when surplus buses were taken from one area to another to meet requirements for transport of workers. Usually the donating owner passed on his oldest vehicles, this bus was geriatric by then, although looking in fair condition for its age. (Wonder where I’ve heard that before.)

‘Ardwell Shop’ on the destination refers not to the actual village of Ardwell but to a crossroads just out of Stranraer, a rather confusing practice that continued into the privatised Western Scottish days until the route was eventually axed.

Just seen this photo again in another programme - the explanation is the Sunderland is being towed from the shore landing ramp to its station on the airfield, which was built across the village road. So when the local bus pootles along on its normal journey and meets the Sunderland, the plane stops and the bus has to gingerly manoeuvre round it to continue its journey.
