    The vehicle in the picture is No 6 in the East Surrey Traction Company fleet, reg no P8193. It entered service in November 1912, and had a Leyland 30 hp engine and Chalmers bodywork. Rebodied in 1915 it ran until 1921.

    This location is the Feathers Inn, Merstham. The former garage that stood next to the Railway Arms is visible on the left.

    This looks like it was taken outside James Knight's the drapers. I had my first Saturday job here in their haberdashery department. The shop is still in the same location, but is no longer owned by the Knights, even though they have kept the name.

    This is another picture of fleet number 6, this time after being rebodied in 1915

    Andrew Kulka from Reigate posted this comment on 16/08/2012 at 12:29
    This picture is taken in Station Approach, Redhill outside of R Nicol & Son, Drapers. The building is still there although much changed at street level.

    Martin Snow from Redhill, Surrey posted this comment on 06/03/2014 at 19:43
    At first glance one could easily believe it was outside Knights in Reigate, however it appears Andrew Kulka could be right. Above the bus you see the large letter J to the left, which could be the J from J. Sainsbury which was the shop next door tp Nicols, now the cycle shop.

    MARTIN SNOW from Redhill posted this comment on 23/09/2014 at 23:21
    Having since enlarged the image above I can now see the full letting of J. Sainsbury and therefore this image is 100% confirmed as Station Road Redhill. In the photo below its the shop with the canopy where one can see the lettering above. Thanks

    This vehicle is No 7 in the East Surrey fleet, with a Dennis chassis and a Chalmers body. It was withdrawn on the outbreak of the first world war and the chassis passed to the war department.

    This vehicle is number 69 in the East Surrey fleet, though not owned by them but on loan from the London General Omnibus Company. It is an AEC 'K' type and is fleet number K895 in their fleet. It was put into service in March 1923 and was returned to LGOC in October 1929.

    This picture is of East Surrey's fleet No 20 which entered service in July 1919 with an AEC chassis and an ex-LGOC body, it was withdrawn from service in 1925. It is shown on route s22, which only ran to Hartfield from May 1924 until June 1926, and again from October 1926 until January 1927.

    I wonder whether the following Surrey Mirror article of 5th March 1915, refers to the accident in this photo:

    Territorials Injured
    Accident to a Reigate Motor ‘bus
    An extraordinary accident occurred in the High-street, Reigate, on Tuesday evening, resulting in serious injury to two Territorials and minor injuries to three others. It appears that a party of men of the 19th County of London Regiment were drawn up by the side of the roadway opposite the Battalion Stores. A double-decked ‘bus of the East Surrey Traction Company was proceeding along the High-street, Reigate, towards West-street, when the steering wheel of the ‘bus failed, and the vehicle ran into the Territorials. Several of the men were knocked down, two of them being seriously injured. These two, Ptes. Birch and Atkinson were conveyed on a R.A.M.C. motor ambulance to the Red Cross Hospital at Hillfield, Reigate, and three other men, Ptes. Savage, Suckey, and Toole, were taken to their billets. The men were first attended to by their regimental doctor, and members of the R.A.M.C. also rendered assistance. The driver of the ‘bus was George E. Purchase, and when he found his steering wheel was out of order he at once applied his brakes, but could not pull up in time to prevent the ‘bus swerving into the men.
    Upon inquiry it was ascertained that all the men were progressing satisfactorily.

    Q5 was one of only two vehicles of this type ordered by the country area of London Transport in 1934. It went into service from Leatherhead garage on route 406, but between 1936 and 1938 was based at Reigate (where this is likely to have been taken) on route 410.

    It is remarkable that this bus was ordered only 10 years after the S type shown above, was built.
