The chassis was new to Wilts and Dorset Motor Services in 1947, but a body wasn’t fitted until 1949. It remained in service with Wilts and Dorset until 1962, before being used by Enham Alamein Disabled Village at Andover and then passing into preservation. Its current owner bought the bus in 1983.
The bus was repainted at the start of 2012 and has since had its seats re-upholstered and internal flooring replaced.
