The Dodge was based at stn.26, Droitwich,call sign originally 'Charlie Uniform', then changed to 268. It moved to Worcester for a spell, as 218, then finally to Malvern stn.41 as 418, maintaining Control Unit status until its replacement in 2000 by a 'coach' built style command unit, still running front line today.
