Stratford Blue: 1927–1970

On Thursday 31st December 1970, Stratford-upon-Avon Blue Motors Limited (aka Stratford Blue) ceased trading and the business and operations were absorbed into the parent company, BMMO (Midland Red).

The end of 2020 will be the 50th Anniversary of this event, so to remember those popular blue and cream buses and coaches, here is a photograph of Leyland Leopard HAC628D, seen in London during 1969. Thankfully, this vehicle has survived and is now preserved in it's original condition.
