Gloucestershire Leyland 180/Fulton & Wylie

Along with Lancashire and Greater Manchester, Gloucestershire briefly flirted with the Leyland chassis.

Buckinghamshire had 1 or 2 of these machines too. Not sure about the bodywork - but Reliance Mercury rings a bell. Lancs and GMC had dozens of these machines!

Mountain Range built Bucks. Leyland bodies. They were F66/68LBW of 1989 and H812/3JUD. Bucks. bought 6 different chassis types in less than 5 years,bet their fitters were really amused!

Hi, A friend of ours owns H813JUD, Picture No 18649. I agree with the comment about there wierd and wonderfull fleet that Bucks have employed over the years. I think they have settled down over the last few years and stuck with Scania's.
I think there old fleet manager moved to Wiltshire.

Cirencester ran a Leyland H736 JDG spec not sure possible angloco from what I recall.
I'm sure it was taken out of regular service in 1999.

Remember seeing a pic of one of the Gloucesterhire machines that had Rosenbauer bodywork - probably with an Angloco badge on...In fact I'm pretty sure the Gloucester heavy rescue was also Rosenbauer/Angloco.

H736JDG was the Rosenbauer/Angloco Leyland WrL,the other six being Fulton&Wylie. They also took 3 Compact WrL with the same body suppliers (H737-9JDG) with 10 ton chassis at the same time. Gloucestershire also took G529BAD Dodge RG13C with Rosenbauer bodywork,at the time the only pure Rosenbauer WrL in the country.
