On The Fiddle AKA Operation Snafu AKA Operation Warhead (1961, Sean Connery, Alfred Lynch)


RAF wartime comedy. This approaching double decker is revealed as CAP212, a 1950 Bristol K5G new to Brighton Hove and District as 6357, but renumbered 357 when it was converted as a convertible opentopper in 1955. The third view shows its fleetname painted over; it was out of use by the time this was filmed and may even have been sold:
Arriving at the end is Bedford OB GFD323, a 1946 Bedford OB/Duple, also displaying no fleetname but new to Bestway of Netherton:
