I made a determined effort to get there this year and the star of the show for me was Roger Burdett's restored Bristol GJW open topper VG5541 from 1933. It originally entered service with Norwich Electric Traction company in June of that year. By December 1935 it was recorded with Eastern Counties Omnibus Company, but it wasn't until 1950 that its Weymann H24/24R body was converted to open top for the Felixstowe Sea Front Service. After withdrawal in 1960, it went to dealer Ben Jordan of Coltishall and saw subsequent use in California USA. Roger Burdett began restoration at the turn of the century and it certainly looked the part.
