Syd says that 'Eastern Counties played with a couple of Falcons at Great Yarmouth too....here is one just behind James Paget Hospital on a Great Yarmouth to Somerleyton 582 run, normally in the hands of the Mercedes Benz minibuses'.
Ipswich 109 is from a second batch of seven Dennis Falcons bodied by Northern Counties in 1968 which later also found its way to Leicester and Northampton

Syd also supplies a photo of Eastern Counties Mercedes J530FCL in use 'on the 582 on the same day as the Falcon, the Purple base was for a 'Target' advert that was yet to be applied! Note the lack of passengers in the pre-concession era, no wonder the service was withdrawn'.
My thinks to Syd for the information and photos
