Obviously there was never a dull moment for this casting. It was involved in a continuous process of change, revision, repair and replacement. 

Thanks, John, for your comment. Happy 2020 to everyone! Kind regards, Jan

Thanks John,

I love this website for all these little discoveries. 

It keeps me searching for whats out there.

Me too!

I've just noticed another little factory anomaly on my original pre-war bus. The DUNLOP TYRES on the left-hand side has been applied twice. It looks as though the first application was misaligned and they made a second application to correct it. The surface has flaked off in places and revealed the original layer. The flaking may be visible in the photos as a faint line curving at one point over the T and Y to the left of the very obvious chip over the R.
