Published privately by the author in 2020, 16 pages. Slim square(ish) booklet - c.17.5cm by 20cm (N7834)

From the inside front cover: During the 40's it was a sad time for Bristol, one reason being that the Luftwaffe smashed up about 50 buses. An urgent need was for help from other companies. So from 1940 onwards, many buses from elsewhere were to be seen on our routes. Most came and returned in their own liveries, but no Fleet Numbers were allocated until 1944 when many had returned home...

The booklet is illustrated throughout with photographs, and it thus provides a fascinating (albeit very brief) insight into the history of Bristols buses during the war

The condition of the booklet is generally excellent. The covers are clean and bright, the staple spine is tight and intact, and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound.
