Together with those from Great Yarmouth, these were the first wartime buses hired by Coventry Corporation.  They were hired in July 1940 to make good the shortfall in the delivery of new buses, but were not used in anger until after the November 14 air raid.  The Coventry fleet numbers were created by painting out one or more of the original fleet numbers.  More details of these buses can be found at the SCT'61 Website
