These two buses were on hire for two months after the air raids of Holy Week 1941. The fleet numbers 230 and 231 had already been issued to CCT COG5/60s in 1939, but the first digit (2) of the fleet number could not have been simply painted out, because 30 and 31 from Great Yarmouth had been in the City since July 1940.  They may have been renumbered 330 and 331 or simply been referred to as Salford 230 and Salford 231, but no reference to this can be found.
