Jim forwarded a photo he had taken at the Norfolk Showground in 1993 of a former Great Yarmouth Eastern Coach Works bodied AEC Swift which begged the question if any examples of the batch had survived

For those that that don't have access to (or are not interested in) Facebook, Chris Speed, Business Manger for First Eastern Counties, announced that he and Danny Beales, GY Operations Manager, have both acquired WEX685M for preservation
It's good to see the 1973 built bus in safe hands again and Chris has already said it will be used at rallies leading to the possibility of a Swift reunion on the cards.
The couple last met up was in June 2012 when No 85 visited the EATM and was posed alongside former Lowestoft Corporation YRT898H
Looking forward to seeing her again
