EHO 869
A 1943 Guy Arab II, EHO 869 (Provincial 57) was rebodied as a combination coach and bus in 1951. After many years of restoration, number 57 made her first visit to the Stokes Bay rally.

Bus Rally
Stokes Bay
Sunday 7 August 2016
This annual event has been running since 2003 with a variety of vehicles providing free journeys and a static display.
A highlight of the rally is the afternoon cavalcade of buses on a circuit through Gosport.
This year saw the first visit of Provincial Guy Arab number 57 and People's Provincial number 1 in its new green and white livery.
Low cloud in the morning gave way to a sunny if breezy afternoon. An excellent day for a bus ride to the seaside.
