SPW999 was new to East Coast Motor Company (Orange Coaches) of Cromer in 1955 and then went to Babbage (Grey & Green) a year later. It has a further local connection in that it went to Reynolds of Caister in April 1962 and in circa 1991 was sold to a private owner near North Walsham.
Unfortunately the bid by the local businessman to acquire it for preservation was unsuccessful. John Wakefield has subsequently pointed me in the direction of a recent Flickr photo of SPW999 taken earlier this month. Apparently it has been privately acquired and moved to West Yorkshire for a long term conversion to a camper van.
My thanks to John for bringing this to my attention
