Gag Halfrunt wrote Mrs Miniver was made by MGM in Hollywood. The bus is definitely a fake built using a real American bus - you can see a passenger door on the right, just behind the front wheel.

SteveA's site, Buses on Screen, has an entry for Mrs Miniver, where you can see that the bus has been given an open platform on the left at the back.

No idea what it is, but I would speculate it's the same bus as was used in two 1958 movies: 'Darby's Rangers' (with James Garner) to represent a London bus, also a truly bizarre appearance in the Danny Kaye musical 'Merry Andrew' (this time in colour).
By comparison, the 1950 sequel 'The Miniver Story' has footage genuinely shot in London

Fageol Safety Coach?

Striking similarity with the #9 bus in 'Midnight Lace' which nzcarnerd deduced to be based on a Fageol Safety Coach. Mention on that page of a half-cab being added later.

Austin LL or Morris-Commercial taxi in foreground(?) with guy sitting on the luggage platform reading a paper.
Dear Sunbar, please can you identify some of the other vehicles in the frame?

The taxi might well be the only real British vehicle in this shot.
