Thank you for your reply Neil, as it's very much appreciated and what you did is honestly not a problem really, it was just a shock to see it on here, that's all! I fully understand what you mean, regarding not all members on this forum being on Facebook and so it's understandable that you yourself would want to share my photo with everybody on here! (I guess I should look at it as being a compliment in a way? lol). I would have got 'round to posting it on here myself anyway, as I'd already just posted it on two Coventry related Facebook sites, but as forum member "WEARETHEMODS" has suggested (and a good idea it is too!), if ever I post any of my transport related photo's onto Facebook, I will straight away then post the same photo's on here as well, so that nobody misses out on seeing them then! Anyway Neil, I appreciate and respect you for your reply and so please don't worry about anything, as it's all water under the bridge now and honestly not a problem at all!!! This forum is a brilliantly run site, with the most fantastic and very knowledgeable members on it and if people are happy to see any of my photo's, then I promise you that I'll keep on posting them on here!!! To save any embarrassment on this now (lol) and to knock it on the head, please feel free Neil to delete my comment above on the matter and either edit or delete this message of mine here now as well, as we can just forget everything then and I'll just re-post the photo myself underneath, in a new post!!!

A 1974 view here of a "RADFORD" bound Daimler Fleetline Bus, seen leaving The Burges and crossing over Corporation Street towards Bishop Street!

A really fine picture. My favourite bus route because it dropped me off at the top of Lydgate Hill when I went to see my gran. The shop on the left hand corner was a men's outfitters in the 60s. I bought a full outfit of clothes once when I was on leave. Buying clothes then was a pleasure, not a chore.

A 1948 Daimler CVA6 here, seen standing in Pool Meadow bus station circa 1967, while on Driver Training duty! (You'll notice the big "DRIVER UNDER INSTRUCTION" "L" Plate attached to its radiator grill!).

It is carrying a "fleet number" 00, as opposed to the original 19. It also briefly carried 419 towards the end of its life Thumbs up

As a child for an occasional treat on a Sunday afternoon in the summer I would be taken on a ride on a bus around the outer circle route. I think it began and ended at Pool Meadow but I can't remember where it went. Can anyone remember the route please?

A 1951 Maudslay Regent III, seen here in Pool Meadow Bus Station circa 1960 -1962? It was withdrawn from service in May 1965 and sold for scrap to a dealer in South Yorkshire in July of that very same year. There were only nine of these particular Maudslays in the "Coventry Transport" fleet (numbered 117 -125) and sadly not one of them survive today? (I personally would give anything to be able to travel on one of these, or even just to be able to see one up close, but I just have to accept that it's never ever going to happen?).

It may be possible - almost. The Maudslay Regent III's were rebadged AEC Regent III's (London Transport 'RT' bus) built at Parkside. AEC brought out Maudslay in 1948. There is an AEC Regent III preserved at the London Bus Museum at the old Brooklands Racing Circuit near Weybridge, Surrey and they have occasional running days. Closer to home the Severn Valley Railways "On The Buses" event on September 10th has a London Transport theme this year. Peter.
