Type B Omnibus "Ole Bill" WWI Transport

The Type B was built in London from 1910 and is considered to be the first mass produced bus. It had a seating capacity of 34 (16 on the lower deck and 18 on the uncovered upper deck). During WWI, 900 Type B were used to move troops behind the lines. They initially served with their original red and white paintwork before they were repainted khaki. "Ole Bill" was a Type B bus, B43, built in 1911 which served in France and Belgium until 1919.
